How does art help homeless children?

The mission of drawchange is to empower children through art therapy-based programming. How can we actually help children experiencing homelessness? Kaitlin Schwan, a Senior Researcher at The Canadian Observatory on Homelessness, provides research-based evidence of the benefits of art therapy and homeless children in her article: Can Art Make a Difference? Mobilizing Arts to Prevent and End Youth Homelessness. Schwan shares the “transformative and energetic power” art has to change the lives of homeless children.
