A Powerful Force | Outreach Experience

A Powerful Force: Working to End Homelessness Through Art features original artwork created by young people experiencing homelessness. The exhibition’s title was inspired by sentiments original expressed by Walt Disney himself: “There is great comfort and inspiration in this feeling of close human relationships and its bearing on our mutual fortunes—a powerful force to overcome the tough breaks which are certain to come for most of us from time to time.”

A Powerful Force will feature artworks created by homeless youth with three greater San Francisco Bay Area partner organizations: Raphael House, Larkin Street Project, and Youth Spirit Artworks. These nonprofit organizations each strive to help at-risk youth and their families achieve independence by providing career-building skills, educational programs, and safe housing.
