Children living in homeless shelters and refugee children join us in creating art projects centered around sharing with them a vehicle to visualize a break from the cycle of poverty. We empower them to reach their dreams while building confidence.
Self-confidence is a sustaining emotional anchor that carries children through times of turmoil and transition that they encounter during the cycle of homelessness and poverty. Our desired outcome when creating art with the children is to provide happiness, awareness of self, empowerment, and a sense of belonging. Through our programs, we prove to the children that you can attain anything you can imagine. Within the United States, we currently have programs in Atlanta, Orlando, and Tucson. Support our programs with a monetary donation or by volunteering today!

Everything we do and all work done with the children focus on one or more of our core competencies.
Focusing on what makes us unique and special, and viewing ourselves in a positive light
Repetition and mindfulness help limit stress that often trickles down from adults
Express feelings, develop new ways of thinking, and provide insight into their emotions
Learning valuable lessons on sharing, being respectful, and how to work together
Affected by the loss of power, children visualize a different outcome and the value of family
Allowing the mind to run wild with its ability to be creative and resourceful
Children are guided to focus on their unique life goals down to the minor details
“You do not need to be an artist to volunteer, you only need to know how to express love.”

Children's Art Shows
Fostering a sense of community in the children we serve not only aids them in their ability to collaborate with others but also boosts their self-esteem and ability to dream beyond their circumstances. By taking them on field trips such as community-sponsored art shows where they get to proudly display their artwork, group activities such as a visit to a splatter paint studio, or taking them to see others' artwork and creations on display in places they don't normally have access to such as art museums, NASA, and puppet shows, we give them the opportunity to build bonds with each other, their community, and expand their view on what is capable.
