JP Art names University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work as 2018 Nonprofit of the Year
Since 2011, Artist John Ross Palmer has made philanthropy a dedicated part of his business model by selecting and supporting a Nonprofit of the Year. Rather than donate piecemeal to charities, Palmer gives gargantuan support to a worthy cause.

Artist John Ross Palmer says, "I am thrilled about this year's partnership for numerous reasons. I have personally reaped the benefits of therapy and I'm an advocate for its use in self-awareness and personal growth. Also, I believe social workers can serve as a conduit in our society to help level the playing field when our culture has pervasive issues with racial, gender, socioeconomic and other inequities."
