Art Where We Are is a non-profit dedicated to building resiliency by nurturing creativity within children living in temporary housing. Creative expression in the shelters where the children are living; with open ended, process oriented visual art activities delivered in a safe, supportive and judgment free environment.
Children deserve the opportunity to feel in control in their lives and confidence in their abilities. Encouraging children to explore ideas and materials builds deeper understanding of themselves and of the world around them leading to more hope, peace and compassion in the world
We believe that opportunities for creative expression are necessary for healthy child development. Access to art can help to heal emotional wounds, strengthen family bonds, and counter the adverse effects of homelessness.
Our volunteers provide regular opportunities to make art, play with materials, and learn for children at a D.C. emergency shelter and Baltimore transitional housing program.
