What We Do

Art & Soul Dreams energetically brings visibility to Michigan children in foster care in need of immediate and permanent adoption. Our mission highlights that each child is a work of art.

We are an all-volunteer non-profit. We work with a variety of human services and adoption agencies to photograph children who are available for adoption and showcase these photographs in exhibits throughout Michigan.

At these traveling exhibits, the community connects to photos that capture the soul of a child looking for his/her "forever family." The photos reveal the child in a whole new light, revealing a paradigm shift so the viewer can see each child as loveable, hopeful, and capable of living a life rich in possibilities.

All kids need that one person to show up and help them reach their hopes and dreams. Be that person by joining the Art & Soul Dreams movement. Together, we can change the culture of foster care, adoption, and families.

Interesting Info

There are 13,000 children in Michigan foster care today and 392 do not have an identified family.
In 3 years of exhibits, we have featured 42 children. 30% are now matched with a pre-adoption family!
The children are invited to their opening exhibit where each leaves knowing they are seen and valued.
