Our goal is to raise awareness of homelessness in San Antonio; and break down the stigma people may feel towards homelessness. Haven for Hope is a homelessness organization whose mission is to offer a place of hope and new beginnings. They provide a system of care for people experiencing homelessness. Together, with Bonham Academy, we will strive to raise awareness, and needed goods through our ACTOURS Project II. This is a touring show in which students will discuss, through performance, homelessness, Haven for Hope, and how to help the homeless. We will create a progressive sonnet with children at Haven for Hope that will allow expression covering different themes related to homelessness, success, fears, and perseverance.
- Break down the stigma that society feels towards homelessness
- Provide a real look into how people fall into homelessness
- Promote caring for the homeless, especially the homeless youth in San Antonio.
The $20,000 will go towards remodeling our space allowing for more students to be educated, and funding our Conservatory program. Theatre builds community; this will allow our reach into our city to be that much wider.
