For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.' - Jesus

Creative Arts

We believe that self-esteem and a sense of worth grow in young people when they are in an environment that is supportive in its nature. We respond to, and interact with, our young people in a way that demonstrates how we value and respect them.  In our Creative Arts Program, our young people experience a sense of genuine caring and support, in addition to the development of their individual gifts and skills.   In addition to developing artistic talents in kids through drawing, puppetry, etc. volunteers teach various musical instruments, and are in the process of developing a youth band.  It is our vision and hope that the young people in our community will see this program and our Bags of Hope Center as a safe place, a place of healing, a place where a sense of wholeness and direction can be found, and individual growth and development can occur.  We are excited about the transformation that takes place as a result of this program, and we are grateful to all the volunteers who work tirelessly to develop each individual talent.
