Free Arts for Abused Children 

The philosophy behind all Free Arts programs is simply that "ART HEALS!", because they know that artistic expression and positive interactions with caring adult volunteers help vulnerable children thrive.  This allows the children to build self-esteem, access their creativity and develop nurturing relationships in ways that enrich their lives.    

Free Arts was founded in 1977 by a group of caring artists who believed in the power of arts as a vehicle for transforming the lives of children and families in crisis.

The children who participate in their programs directly benefit from exploring their own creative voice and encouragement of caring volunteers.  They typically gain equal satisfaction from creating art projects that they intend to give as gifts to family, friends and loved ones.  As a result, young people grow in their recognition of the importance of generosity as well as their ability to give something of themselves that will brighten another person's day.

Homework House    

Founded in 1997, the Homework House was established to sustain neighborhood-based learning centers where at-risk children and their families thrive academically, socially and spiritually.  Their strategies reflect a holistic approach to empowering support using trained tutors and staff who equip students to be successful in school.   

Their vision is to see children, youth, and their families reach a future of fulfillment through specific building blocks.  They believe that beginning with a firm foundation in education students can extend their development into building social skills and spirituality.

Jesse, a Homework House student from 1999 to 2009 is now serving as a police officer in Los Angeles and was our keynote speaker at the March 2013 fundraising dinner.

Emily, a Homework House student from 2000 - 2011 now attends Azusa Pacific on a full scholarship and volunteers five days a week as an assistant program director and mentors children at the Homework House.
