Mission Statement

HEAL’s mission is to empower homeless youth and young adults with a strong focus on art and building entrepreneurial skills. By cultivating values of creativity, work ethic, and leadership in a safe, inclusive space, HEAL will provide opportunities for personal growth, as well as the tools needed to combat the hardships which coincide with being homeless to make meaningful and positive changes in their lives.


We believe that creative expression through art, music, and writing is an essential part of life and benefits the community as a whole. HEAL is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides a space to create art for the young, homeless community of San Diego.

We host monthly "Art in the Park" events, where we provide art supplies in a creative outdoor space for both the homeless community and non-homeless locals who wish to create art side by side. The work created during these events will be displayed at fundraising events and art shows.

HEAL is currently fundraising to open a Mobile Art Studio. We will fill up a truck with art supplies, musical instruments, easels, and fold up furniture to bring an art studio right into the communities we work with. HEAL's ultimate goal is to open an indoor communal art space. In the space we will hold art workshops, music lessons, poetry slams, and art shows, as wells as resume building and job interviewing workshops.
