The mission of Art & Soul is: To inspire Dignity, Pride and Purpose among the homeless of Detroit through hands on participation in arts and crafts.
Dignity, Pride and Purpose: three essential needs of every human being, and things one loses due to the idleness of unemployment and homelessness. Art & Soul is more than arts and crafts; it feeds people's deepest needs of connection and community. In cooperation with The NOAH Project, a Detroit soup kitchen, we want to create a nurturing environment to welcome the homeless in from the cold of Detroit winters and give them a safe home for their art and other forms of self-expression. Our long-range objective is to help the participants develop products suitable for sale on their own or through a cottage industry for homeless arts. With the Pepsi grant Art & Soul can keep the heat and lights on in a bright and hopeful spot of Detroit.
