Home Is Where the Art Is

Annually, HomeFirst hosts a therapeutic art-making workshop series facilitated by local artists to give residents at our participating shelters or interim housing sites an opportunity to learn new artistic skills, build connections and community, and pursue creative outlets while they work on pursuing their permanent housing goals.


Since art-making can improve individuals' physical, cognitive, emotional, and psychological health and/or well-being, Home Is Where the Art Is has become a staple program that propels HomeFirst's mission to help our residents find a home, improve their lives, and stay housed.

Join us on June 13th for the culmination of this year's workshops and to hear the voices of our unhoused community!

  • View original art pieces on showcase.

  • Enjoy complimentary admission, wine, and hors d'oeuvres.

  • Listen to unique audio narratives about the art & artists in our sound booth!

  • Meet local artists and workshop instructors Rayos Magos and Shanti Nagwani.

  • Purchase original artwork or prints (50% of proceeds will go to the artist; 50% towards HomeFirst's mission).
