Some of the stories of how Artlifting has helped Artists are amazing.
Katie Hickey-Schulz- Katie experienced homelessness on and off for 10 years, but came across ArtLifting and discovered artistic inspiration. Katie was recently accepted to a program in New Mexico that provides her with both housing and the opportunity to develop art programs for low-income families.
Scott Benner- Scott is currently homeless. His economic situation deteriorated when the company worked for shut down and his chronic illness kept him from finding gainful employment. Since joining with ArtLifting, Scott has had his life's work featured in an exhibition on the famous Newbury St in Boston, and his work has been hung in the Boston Design Center.
Allen Chamberland- Allen battles COPD, a disorder that keeps him from earning a full-time wage. Currently Allen and ArtLifting are preparing his first art show that will run for 2 months this fall in Boston. The proceeds Allen has received from ArtLifting sales will ensure he is able to stop collecting disability within the next year.
