Bread & Roses Presents

Bread & Roses Presents™ is dedicated to uplifting the human spirit by providing free, live, quality entertainment to people who live in institutions or are otherwise isolated from society. Our performances:

  • enrich the soul and promote wellness through the healing power of the performing arts;
  • create a sense of community for our professional performers, in a non-commercial setting in which they can donate their talents to inspire and be inspired;
  • provide an opportunity for non-performing volunteers to contribute a variety of skills and resources that support our humanitarian services and increase the impact of donor contributions.

In carrying out this mission, Bread & Roses Presents™ seeks to create a social awareness of people who are isolated from society, and to encourage the development of similar organizations in other communities.

Over the years, Bread & Roses has received awards for its community impact and its overall effectiveness and efficiency. In addition, other organizations around the country have been inspired by our work.
