Our Mission

Our Mission

We bring art programming to promote creativity and community for Chicagoans lacking access to the arts.

Velinda Alexander

True to Life Foundation’s partnership with ArtReach has made a tremendous difference in the art experience in our program. Our youth have been exposed to an array of different techniques, designs, types of art, as well as arts of other cultures. The children are showing appreciation and excitement for art that we have not seen in the past. That’s exciting.
