Our Mission

The mission of ONE HEART ONE SOUL is to use the power of arts, community, & innovation to connect, empower and encourage youth experiencing homelessness. 

Pillars of Action

Our trauma-informed care has three distinct goals through our pillars of action:

(1) Providing interactive workshops to homeless youth that focus on creative expression, developing positive outlets and building entrepreneurial skills through the creation of literary and visual works (2) Creating no age-out programs that directly serve marginalized populations and provide them with access to the resources and support they need through our; and (3) Creating initiatives that focus on engaging with communities while exposing and educating communities to the world of homelessness.

Our Vision

One Heart One Soul's vision is to create a world where youth experiencing seasons of homelessness are seen as more than their current situation. A world where our youth are provided with the resources and safety they need to transition out of homelessness and are supported in doing so by the communities they reside in.
