Fresh Start

Fresh stART

Fresh stART is a program of the Homeless Alliance designed to provide people experiencing homelessness in Oklahoma City with a supportive environment for creating art.

In addition to providing a potential source of income, open studio art programs enable people to express themselves creatively, manage emotional issues, develop social skills through positive interactions with a peer group, confidence and skills transferable to employment.

Fresh stART hosts studio time three times per week at the Day Shelter located on the Homeless Alliance’s Westtown Homeless Resource Campus. Fresh stART hosts shows periodically throughout the year both on the Westtown Homeless Resource Campus and at art galleries and community events.


If you would like to donate art supplies, we could use canvases (even if they are already painted on we can Gesso over), sketch pads, water color paper, pencils, sharpeners, Gesso, acrylic paint and paint brushes. We do not have the capacity to take craft items at this time. For more information, contact: freshstart@homelessalliance.org
