About Home Front: Building Self Confidence With Therapeutic Art…

Homelessness and poverty rob people of their self respect, making it harder for them to focus on things they can do to improve their own situations. The ArtSpace at HomeFront program helps build self esteem and seeks to improve and enhance the physical, mental and emotional well-being of our clients. We believe that the creative process involved in self-expression helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight. ArtSpace works to rebuild souls through creativity.

Our innovative therapeutic art program draws on creativity, and promotes socialization, self-confidence and self-expression among individuals who might have low self-esteem because of poverty, homelessness, and family abuse. Encouraging women to tap into their creativity can help open doors to new ways of thinking, living and exploring. The results often amaze the aspiring artists themselves – revealing the full voice of their ability to express themselves.  ArtSpace offers a selection of corporate art and has an annual holiday card line offered to business in exchange for a tax deductable donation.
