When telling a story, often words cannot do justice to what you are describing. Artists captivate and empower our story through their artwork to the community.

Join us for this emotional event that brings home the message that everyone experiences struggles and everyone is worthy of help. Homelessness touches so many families. Funds raised will provide food, shelter, employment assistance and programs for guests at McHenry County PADS.
