November Volunteer Orientation


Join us on Saturday November 9, 2019 for our November Volunteer Orientation. Attendees will receive a tour of our Studio & Gallery, learn about the history and impact of our organization, and sign all of the needed contracts and Volunteer Handbook. Attendees will also have an opportunity to learn about our variety of volunteer positions. Our volunteers are instrumental in helping our artists impacted by homelessness gain valuable social skills, receive needed encouragement, and establish security nets. Volunteers are provided opportunities to support and build meaningful relationships with our artists overcoming homelessness.
 
“If there is no friendship with the poor and no sharing of life with the poor, then there is no authentic commitment to liberation, because love only exists among equals.” – Father Gustavo Gutierrez, In the Company of the Poor
 
Poverty and the Arts (POVA) is a social enterprise nonprofit that provides supplies, studio space, training, and a marketplace for artists impacted homelessness to create and sell artwork, as well as gain valuable entrepreneurial and social skills. These skills and environment help our clients earn creative income, access higher-waged employment, increase their housing stability, and build the necessary security nets to remain out of homelessness.
