Home is the focal point … the center around which family grows. Our spire visually represents our core values that build the framework for family success: a safe and secure home, basic necessities, love, nurturing, education and life skill tools. Each side of the spire represents different aspects of home life, growing strong like a jack-in-the-beanstalk vine, integrating the parts to grow and thrive.

About the Artist
ArtSpace, a spacious studio located at the heart of HomeFront’s Family Campus. This warm, light-filled space is the first thing you notice when entering the building, and it welcomes you to look around, join in, and pick up a paint brush. In this non-threatening, non-judgmental environment, with a caring staff and a team of volunteers to prompt and guide them, clients are reminded of their goals and dreams; discover content that is personal, real, and truthful; and foster a sense of joy, creativity, and exuberance.
Through this innovative therapeutic art program, the creative process becomes a tangible tool for self-expression, critical thinking and problem-solving that can transform the lives of HomeFront clients. Making art lets us step away from our lives for a moment. It’s a chance to breathe, a chance to reset your system and bring a new reality to an otherwise blank page. All of us as humans need to express ourselves in some way. When there are limits to how you can express yourself, having an outlet where you can create, where you can make art, opens doors to new ways of thinking and helps us to see ourselves in new and beautiful ways.
