Giving has never been easier! Small monthly payments add up to make a huge difference. Most families give between $50-$100 each month. If every family signed up for recurring payments, we would be able to fund all of our programs.
Thank you to everyone who has already given this year.

Origami Invasion - Art Elective
By 2018 Art Elective
Public Art made a simple piece of paper into something beautiful and symbolic. We came up with this idea by collaborating together and combining ideas.
The origami resembles creation. This piece of artwork represents overall diversity by uniting the different colors and kinds of animals.
This also connects to the LGBTQ+ community with the assorted rainbow and the separate colors symbolize the different races/ethnicities in this community. We believe making art that applies to everyone is truly expressing belief and solidarity. This art installation is meant to support all members of this community.

For many, the destination was the Auschwitz concentration camp.
