ChopArt

ChopArt is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization helping homeless youth express themselves through art. Through our programming we provide opportunities for community organizations and professional artists to collaborate with our youth participants to create artwork and art projects helping to foster awareness of the homeless situation in Atlanta, generate funds for our homeless youth participants and their families, and provide a platform of positive and creative reflection and self-reflection for our youth.

ChopArt was started in Cape Town, South Africa in 2010 as an outside service provider and traveled to Hyderabad, India in 2011 spending a year operating within the Affordable Private School system. After assessing a potent need for similar programming in the United States, ChopArt launched its program in Atlanta, GA in 2012.

ChopArt and Stand up for Kids are partnered to bring weekly street outreach to homeless youth living on the streets. Each Wednesday, volunteers walk a 5-mile route from downtown Atlanta to pass out hygiene packs and give words of kindness to the youth they spot.
