    A chance to try new things

    Our youth recently visited Burlington Paint and Sip Studio, where lead artist Michael and the team donated an afternoon of painting for 14 youth.

    “Being able to explore new talents is so important in helping our youth see themselves as more than just a ‘homeless kid,'” says Drop-In Coordinator Allie Forward. Thank you!

A chance to try new things: Our youth visit Burlington Paint & Sip!

We had a wonderful time visiting the Burlington Paint and Sip Studio for a fun, substance-free afternoon painting event for youth who access our Drop-In Center. “Being able to share their stories is so important in helping our youth see themselves as more than just a ‘homeless kid.’ These opportunities allow them to escape whatever struggles they are dealing with day-to-day, and just enjoy trying something new and being seen as a member of the community—a person with something to share.”
