About Art4TheHomeless
Imagine... a movement inspired by the arts to open the eyes of Americans to the plight of their own people. Imagine, through art, music and poetry, we are shining a much needed light on our own crisis: HOMELESSNESS

Art4TheHomeless was once a blog called Colors of Ink with Blogcharm, which closed down. Nutang, became the new home of Colors of Ink and was renamed Art4TheHomeless, by a really good friend, Samantha Medd. She is now the Co-Founder of Art4TH.

Now Art4TH is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization that unites artists of all venues to promote homeless awareness in the US.

Art4TH does this through the Art4TH Webzine, a monthly online magazine that features a musician whose music plays throughout the website, a feature artist, and a feature writer while also featuring a homeless relief organization. All artists featured retain their copyrights and all of it is free. If you would like to be a featured artist, musician, or writer contact me at johnnacrider@att.net

Hello and welcome! This entry is for the brand new folks to Art4TheHomeless. My mother and I were homeless due to my job not paying enough for rent. We slept under a bridge where a murder took place. The killers walked right by us and we were blessed because we are still alive. She finally got her disability which enabled us to get into a place. For almost three years, she was on the streets while I was in Job Corps. Before that I was living in Louisiana when Katrina and Rita hit. My mother was in Atlanta doing well with her job. My landlord decided to kick me and a few others out because he wanted to make room for Kevin Costner's movie crew for the movie The Guardian. So I came to GA, joined Job Corps, my mother's legs started failing and she lost her job, lived in shelters then on the streets. Then I got a job, a place, moved her in, lost the job, got another job but this is part time, so I couldn't afford rent. We stayed on the streets again and that's when that shooting took place.


My friend, Beth, runs a blog in the UK and wrote about Art4TH so this is for yall who came from her site. I just wanted to say a quick thank you for stopping by and thanks to Beth for writing about me!

I want to give you the link to the webzine that features artists, musicians, and writers from around the world and also shelters and organizations that help the homeless and need help and volunteers.
