The Pinwheel Story

The Pinwheel Story

Clarity Hope Building

As you walk through the Clarity campus, you will notice that one of the most prominent visuals is the pinwheel. Have you ever wondered why?  When children and families in distress arrive to Clarity, the pinwheel signifies that this is the place where they can “turn their luck around.” A pinwheel inspires such profound ideas as childhood innocence, unseen energy, wish fulfillment, and transformation. Clarity adopted the pinwheel to represent childhood, the innocence of the patients we treat, and of the recovered freedom we wish for them. In that way, Clarity’s pinwheel symbolizes hope and healing for children. You will see our pinwheel throughout the campus and throughout many Clarity materials. The pinwheel reminds us to never forget that our patients, while contending with serious mental, emotional and behavioral challenges, are also kids, and that with children, there is always hope.
