YOUR NONPROFIT RESOURCE FOR ARTS IN MARIN
For more than 30 years, DrawBridge has provided free expressive arts programs at homeless shelters, affordable housing facilities, and community centers across seven San Francisco Bay Area counties. DrawBridge was founded in 1989 by art therapist Gloria Simoneaux, who developed a highly effective method of using the creative arts to help young people work through the complex emotions associated with family challenges. During the first years of program development, those involved saw the transformational effect expressive art can have on the lives of children experiencing housing insecurity. Since those early days, DrawBridge has provided arts programs for more than 35,000 children in communities across the Bay Area.
DrawBridge’s expressive arts programming is built on a firm foundation of cultural awareness and sensitivity that reflects and celebrates the creative power of the children and diverse communities we serve. Recognizing that homelessness and housing insecurity disproportionately impacts communities of color, DrawBridge is dedicated to equity and inclusion internally through the recruitment of board, staff, and volunteers that reflect the diverse audiences we serve, and externally through programs that are deeply rooted in collaboration with the community.
