Building Self Confidence With Therapeutic Art

When you walk into the Family Preservation Center, the sight of a bright, airy studio filled with glorious paintings and intriguing sculpture makes you wonder why, among adults, making art became something reserved for specialists. That’s not the case here. Everyone is an artist. Homelessness and poverty rob people of the self-respect they need to improve their situation. HomeFront’s ArtSpace helps build self-esteem and confidence, while enhancing the physical, mental and emotional well-being of our clients. Our innovative therapeutic art program encourages clients to tap into their creativity, which often opens doors to new ways of thinking and activates a voice they didn’t know they had. The ArtSpace creations are not confined to the studio – they enliven and beautify the whole building. Through exhibition and sale of the art created, ArtSpace provides entrepreneurial skills and opportunities to our artists. The artwork often has themes that educate the public about the plight of the underprivileged members of our community. But most importantly, ArtSpace refurbishes souls through creativity, and assists our clients on the road to self-sufficiency.

ArtSpace works to rebuild souls through creativity, and assist our clients on the road to self-sufficiency.
