Homelessness is an epidemic.

In the decade since the onset of the Great Recession, more people have lost their jobs, health benefits, and homes. According to End Homelessness, more than half a million people across the United States do not have homes due to a rise in poverty, and the inflation of housing as well as living expenses. 

The organization, HomeFront, has taken a step to address and raise awareness about this rampant issue that has devastated those stricken with poverty, through their annual Benefit and art fair, ArtJam. Together, at ArtJam, HomeFront and participating artists use their creative talent to provide shelter, resources, and supplies to the homeless. Being a fundraiser for ArtSpace, a remedial program that gives inspiration and direction to those in need by offering support and a means of encouragement.
