Kids in Focus Exhibition at Civic Center Library

Kids in Focus is a non-profit organization that benefits children ages 10-14 that are at risk and come from backgrounds of poverty, homelessness, neglect or abuse. For this exhibit, they were given a camera and were mentored by professional photographers. Together they took a journey of creativity culminating in this public photography exhibit, a hardbound book and a new self-confidence for the future. The program empowers the kids to explore, to trust and to see the world in a new light. See the exhibit for yourself at Civic Center Library through May.
