Voices & Visions 2015

The Home celebrated 11 years of our Voices & Visions fundraiser and art show, where we exhibit art created by the children and youth in our programs. This year’s theme, “Who Am I?” let the children take a deeper, therapeutic look at how they see themselves today and who they hope to become tomorrow. Their artwork and writing was uplifting, inspiring, and poignant.

We wanted to share with you some of the written statements and visual pieces from the exhibit, along with the photos of the event so that you too can understand how the children in The Home’s care view themselves while facing some of the most difficult times of their lives. Thank you for your support, which gives us the resources to continue this year-long arts program and other services for children and families.
