Art students and teachers from Heart Lake Secondary School in Brampton, Ont., approached The Salvation Army Honeychurch Family Life Resource Centre, a shelter for abused women and children, to provide artwork that would reflect their thoughts on abuse.

Students learned about the shelter and its services. The results were a 5 x 5 foot picture and 24 small pictures, each depicting freedom, which will be proudly displayed within the shelter walls.

“The beauty and elegance of the paintings captured the very essence of the work The Salvation Army desires to accomplish here,” says Yvette Brown, assistant director.

The Salvation Army is grateful to the students and staff who worked tirelessly so that the women and children will be comforted by the warmth and hope the paintings display.
