Free Arts for Abused Children



Free Arts delivers meaningful programs that integrate the healing power of the arts into the lives of children who have faced abuse, neglect, homelessness, and chronic poverty. Since 1977 more than half a million children and their families throughout Los Angeles and Orange counties have benefited from our free, expressive arts programs.

Free Arts recruits, screens, trains, places, and supports community volunteers to work directly with children and families living in crisis. Dance, drama, writing, music, and painting are just some of the avenues of creativity Free Arts volunteers use to encourage children and youth to channel their emotions, release their anger, and develop positive methods of communication.

Mission: Free Arts inspires hope in the lives of children who have experienced abuse, neglect, homelessness, and chronic poverty through innovative arts programs and positive interactions with caring adult volunteers.
