Heart & Hand Center

  • 139 people are interested

The Heart & Hand Center runs an Off-Site Art Mentoring Program through local homeless shelters and school in low income Denver neighborhoods. Each week, the children are given a creative outlet to express themselves through a variety of art projects. Art has been proven to help with non-verbal and verbal expression as well as healing for children dealing with difficult life situations. Art mentoring sessions give the children growing up in a chaotic environment a chance to express themselves, work through their feelings, and connect with Heart & Hand Center volunteers, who can offer them some stability in an often unstable environment.

We are currently seeking two off-site volunteers at our Samaritan House Homeless Shelter location. The Samaritan House art program is held on Thursdays from 6:45-8:00pm. The Samaritan House program reaches approximately 12 at-risk elementary school aged children weekly. No art background necessary.
