We are a unique disaster response and community arts program empowering people to transform communities impacted by natural and man-made disasters by creating colorful art and messages of hope and healing.
Stars of HOPE serve as beacons of compassion for all to see and have made a direct impact on the long-term mental health and resiliency of individuals and entire communities recovering from disaster.
The innovation behind Stars of HOPE is that it transformed a traditional therapeutic art program and leveraged it into a public art installation in a disaster zone. This unique construct magnifies the inspirational and emotional impact to thousands of other disaster survivors throughout devastated communities.
Stars of HOPE has lifted the spirits of millions of people in communities impacted by catastrophic acts of nature including the Greensburg, Kansas tornado, the flooding of Hurricane Sandy, and the deadly Nepal earthquake as well as communities impacted by horrific acts of violence including the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and the terror attacks in San Bernardino, California; Orlando, Florida; Las Vegas, Nevada; Parkland, Florida; and internationally in London, Brussels, and Belgium.
