Throughout quarter two, Housing on Merit provided over 570 hours of after-school programming across our communities.
Volunteers from San Diego State University’s College of Education developed a month-long Art Camp for youth at Rio Vista Apartments in San Diego, California Camp participants were encouraged to explore different art mediums such as paint, collage, and sculpture. They then created their own masterpieces for the community art show, held at the Learning Center. The Art Camp was a success and garnered interest from residents of all ages. All participants wrote thank-you letters to the camp volunteers to express their appreciation for being able to participate in the Art Camp.
