Organizer

Voices UnBroken

Voices UnBroken is a Bronx-based non-profit organization dedicated to providing under-heard members of the community, primarily youth ages 12-24, with the tools and opportunity for creative self-expression.  Through high quality creative writing workshops in juvenile justice facilities,  group homes, residential treatment facilities, jails, and various other transitional and alternative settings, Voices UnBroken nurtures the inherent need in all people to tell their stories and be heard.  It is our belief that this telling of stories and sharing of dreams leads to individual and community growth.

                        

Voices UnBroken is supported, in part , by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs  in partnership  with the New York City Council; the New York State Council of the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and the National Endowment for the Arts.  NeON Arts is a program of the NYC Department of Probation in partnership with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute.  Funding provided by the Open Society Foundations through a grant to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City in support of the NYC Young Men’s Initiative.  We are also grateful to have the private support of the Nathan Cummings Foundation, The Simón Bolívar Foundation, the Pinkerton Foundation, the Tides Foundation, the Union Square Awards Grants Program, and the New York Women’s Foundation.
