The ReCreate Café is a part of The Chattanooga Salvation Army 614 Corps' programming.
The ReCreate Café's primary purpose is “to be a safe haven for the homeless during the day when shelters are closed, meeting physical, social, and spiritual needs without discrimination.” A new Arts Outreach has been added to focus on:
1) Doing Art WITH the Homeless Community not just for them.
2) Offering the space as a Venue for Chattanooga Artists (especially those that are cash-strapped and emerging) for events such as: concerts, poetry readings, rehearsals, acting classes, meetings, etc.
Hopefully we are building bridges between the different community groups within Chattanooga through utilizing the power of The Arts.
