I've had the amazing opportunity to work with the Hearts of Fire Project in San Diego and Los Angeles as a facilitator of the visual arts workshops and ateliers. I witnessed the transformation of homeless men, women and children as they shared their art, poetry and music. The work that Bob and Gail are doing is crucial to our understanding and support of this marginalized segment of our society and to our collective humanity.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
witnessing the smiles, the pride of accomplishment, the humor, faith and resilience of the people who are served.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
