How You Can Help
Since 2007, McAuley House has shared the artwork created by its guests with the wider community in an annual art show titled, “From the Heart.”
The show—which is now held each spring—features music, food, flowers, and the paintings, sketches and collages of McAuley House guests. All of the artwork is available for sale, with proceeds benefiting both the artists and the McAuley House Art Program.
“From the Heart” grew out of an art class founded in 2006 by Kathy King, a clinical social worker, expressive arts therapist and artist. Kathy continues to run the McAuley House Art Program, working weekly with our guests who face addiction, poverty, mental illness and homelessness to express themselves through the creation of beautiful works in the midst of their day-to-day struggles. She has been volunteering with the most vulnerable in our community across her South Side neighborhood for more than 20-years.
The show is always free and open to the public. It is made possible thanks to a wide-range of sponsors and in-kind donors, including:
