Breaking The Cycle of Homelessness with Project HOME’s Handmade Art


As most of you know- I’m a big fan of Etsy. I love handmade art, I love “shopping from the little guy”, and I love the fact that I am shopping from small business and every day people.

Every store has a story behind it, but Project HOME PA‘s story- is quite unique.

This store’s makers and designers are the residents of Project HOME’s housing for the poor and homeless. Homeless men and women who live there- are the people behind this shop’s beautiful scented candles collection, gift sets, soaps and greeting cards.

A story by one of the housing tenants has caught my eye…

I have a life coach at Francis House and I was telling her how I wanted to try new things now that I’m able to do more. She mentioned the art program and I said I’d give it a shot. So I started here with candle-making and it’s been good for me because I don’t handle failure well. It was something that I could do without a bunch of pressure on me. I’m halfway through this art class. That’s opened my mind and it’s good. I’m not working, but my phrase today is ‘work is not wellness, but wellness is work.’
