Announcing ArtCares Jr.

A special exhibition and auction featuring the work of young artists.

Most young people enjoy creative activities: writing, drawing and designing are ways to express who they are, how they feel, and their relationship to the world around them. Creative activities provide opportunities to examine real-life issues and problems – including HIV and AIDS and the stigma attached to it. Art is often a major way children communicate.

ArtCares Jr. is an opportunity for young artists between the ages of 3 and 14 to show off their talents and skills while offering their support for those infected, affected and at-risk for HIV/AIDS. ArtCares Jr. is being presented in conjunction with the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland’s signature fundraiser – ArtCares.

Young artists are given a blank canvas to use as they choose. Any kind of art is accepted – paintings, watercolor, pen and ink, pastel or any other medium they chose to work in. Their art will be displayed at the 78th Street Studios popular ‘Third Friday’ on Friday, February 15th at a special reception from 5-9pm. Works will be auctioned off in a silent auction to help raise funds for the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland.

For more information, or to learn how to participate, contact Rebecca Murray-Strong at 216-621-0766, extension 245, or rstrong@clevelandtaskforce.org.

Communities around the country collaborate with HUD every year and have a Point In Time Count for adults who are homeless. This year the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH), U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), and U.S. Department of Education (ED) have collaborated to launch a Youth Point In Time Count Pilot in nine locations in the U.S. and Cuyahoga County is one of the locations. The goal is to create the most effective way to do a Point In Time Count for youth that are homeless and unstably housed.

If you are interested in assisting with YOUTH COUNT! please contact any of the committee members on the list below. Check out this event page for the latest information on Youth Count!
