LIFE PIECES TO MASTERPIECES

Creating Art, Changing Lives.TM

  A Home Away From Home

That’s what Life Pieces To Masterpieces (LPTM) provides to the hundreds of African American young men and boys growing up in Washington, DC’s most poverty-stricken and volatile neighborhoods. And, in a city with the highest rate of poverty in the United States, there is an urgent need for this loving, safe environment for expressing fear, anger, hope, and joy.

Our programs teach integrity, character development, and leadership skills. LPTM helps young people turn life challenges into opportunities for self-reliance, resilience, and success.

Help us ensure that every child in our community has a strong support system and the prospect of big dreams and a bright future.  Join us.
