Social Service Volunteers
- Therapeutic arts at Breaking Bread can take the shape of specific projects (ex: mosaic flower pots, expressive abstract paintings) to more of an open studio feel where participants are working on individual projects. Regardless of the project, many of our guests need one-on-one guidance and affirmation. To volunteer with this program you don't need to be "artsy," all you need to be is patient, kind, and encouraging.
