1. Art Start’s Family Portrait Project uses portraits and story-telling to actively shift the focus on homeless families by celebrating their strength and unity through difficult times. Through this work, Art Start is seeking to inspire compassion and respect for the resiliency of the human spirit, both within families themselves undergoing poverty-related hardship as well as within New York City’s greater community, grappling with record rates of homelessness.
