Daybreak Arts (formerly Poverty and the Arts) is a social enterprise nonprofit that creates artistic and economic opportunities for people experiencing housing insecurity by providing them access to the creative resources needed to achieve personal fulfillment and success.

Their Artist Collective Program equips people impacted by homelessness with the artistic resources, training, and marketplace to gain financial independence and overcome barriers to employment by leveraging their creative talent to earn meaningful and legal income.

The gallery is currently open to the public by appointment.

Daybreak Arts shines light on issues surrounding housing insecurity and strives to provide those who are systematically excluded from opportunity the means to explore their creativity and gain the economic mobility to reclaim access to housing, health, and community. Daybreak Arts creates a space where authentic relationships can be built and personal growth can occur. Their goal is to initiate change on a community, societal, and ultimately global level.
