The more you can help, the more we can help.

Homelessness is a complicated issue that requires multiple efforts. AFTS seeks to address the effects of homelessness through daily practice in a learning environment, with support from positive role models, to help foster new, positive, and creative habits. 

Our normal operations of working in our downtown open studio sessions from 1-4 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, helping out at the Annual Show & Sale in December, helping host a show or fundraiser are suspended due to Covid-19.

We are looking for volunteers to help reach out to our artists at this time and to deliver art kits to locations convenient to them as well as pick up the finished work.
