ARTWALK NY brings together hundreds of artists, art-lovers and other compassionate New Yorkers at this landmark event to celebrate the role of “artist-as-activist” and raise awareness about the issues of homelessness, poverty and social justice.

The Coalition for the Homeless provides emergency food and clothing, eviction prevention, crisis services, permanent housing, job training and special programs for kids to over 3,500 New Yorkers each day. For more than three decades, we’ve been helping homeless men, women and children find their way to a safe, stable home.
