Combating isolation and building connections though Kayaking and Collective Arts
Skye’s the Limit! Foundation’s programming not only encourages expressing oneself creatively, but also empowers those living with trauma to speak out and express themselves when in need of support and help.
We provide an after school, culturally competent, trauma-informed substance abuse and suicide prevention program. The program enhances mental health support available to youth at risk of turning to drugs and/or alcohol and improves their critical life, social, job, and relationship skills.
Led by prevention specialists, art therapists, and professional artists trained in trauma-informed care, this unique year-round program offers much needed, out-of-school-time activities (including kayaking and collective art projects such as designing public murals) for at-risk students. The ultimate goal of the program is to provide safe space for youth to express themselves and communicate, and if needed, the opportunity and ability to ask for help from trusted adults and/or peers.

To honor Skye's dream of becoming a nurse, Skye's the Limit Foundation offers a nationwide scholarship program designed to encourage and support aspiring nurses who are dedicated to helping others overcome their illnesses, challenges, and adversities.
Skye’s the Limit Foundation was founded to honor the life and legacy of Skye Gina Pilato, whose trauma-related passing at the age of 19 inspired our mission to prevent Trauma Related Loss by substance overdose or suicide by building resiliency and empowering our youth, families, and communities.
Skye wanted to be a nurse, and we are convinced she would have been an outstanding one. She once said that she wanted to be a nurse to help others "so that no one would have to feel the pain I feel." She believed that everyone deserves to be loved and to prosper and grow, free of harm.

"Dial 988 for Support"
Skye’s Heavenly Birthday: March 7th
SKYE'S BIRTHDAY IS ON MARCH 7th AND YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED to celebrate Angel Skye's birthday and raise awareness on mental health.
LOVE ROCKS! LOVE HEALS! Let's get our heARTs on!
In Skye’s name and spirit, March 7th is declared to be: “Get Your heART on Day!” March 7th is the day Skye was born in 1995. March 7th, for me, is and always will be a day to celebrate her creation into this world, her smile and her everlasting creative spirit. She was very creative and used different mediums of art as a way to express herself and to channel her feelings, love and trauma.
In love, peace and Skye’s spirit, Keiko, Skye’s Mom
1. Paint rocks together with friends and family and share ideas of ways we can support friendships and those who might be “going through it”.
2. Write “dial 988 for support” on the back of your rock. 988 is a number that people can call when they are feeling sad, alone and need help.
3. Join us on Zoom and paint with us! 10am - 11am
Use this link: Zoom Link for event
1. Take a picture of your painted rock and share that picture with us on facebook along with one statement of how we can be a supportive friend. Example: [insert your picture] “I can tell my friend that their feelings matter to me.” Use this facebook link to rsvp to our event and post your picture. OR upload your pictures to our Shared Google Folder
2. After you post your picture on our facebook event page, take your rocks and place them around your community for others to find and enjoy your message of love - give someone a reason to smile on this day. :)
March 7th is a day to give the gift of a smile. In Skye's name, spirit and love and all the angels above, we are placing our rocks of love and positive messages out in the broader community as a way to share our heart, our love, with others. We invite you to do the same.
**This project was inspired by Frederick Rocks! in MD. Thank you, Katrina Benson for sharing your rock paintings and inspiring us to paint and share our rocks of LOVE!
