Helping over 100 artists in 6 years.

Since 2014, Daybreak Arts (Formerly Poverty & the Arts) has been transforming homelessness in Nashville through creative arts. They provide artistic and economic opportunities to advance new models of economic justice and community that are sustainable and replicable for those impacted by homelessness.
