BuildaBridge Refugee Project has been collaborating with community partners since 2011 to bring quality therapeutic arts groups to refugees Philadelphia. Trained creative arts therapists as well as visual and performance artists work with refugees in their communities to help build resilience, hope, and a sense of belonging. Since the Project’s founding, more than 300 immigrant, refugee, and asylum-seeking adults and children have been served by its programming. We serve in locations around Philadelphia, including community-based locations in South and Northeast Philadelphia, and at Nationalities Service Center in Center City.

BuildaBridge is a non-profit 501(c)3 arts education and intervention organization. Our mission is to engage creative people and the transformative power of art making to bring hope and healing to children, families, and communities in the contexts of crisis and poverty.

BuildaBridge envisions a world where all children are resilient, experience self-efficacy, and have a vision for their future. BuildaBridge dedicates its resources to building the capacity of creative adults and local communities to fulfill this vision.
