Product Description

imaniYour donation helps our students achieve educational goals and plan for successful careers.

“When I was younger, I thought there was no future for me. Parents always tell you that you can do anything, but as a child, once you realize the environment you’re in, reality sets in. My reality was that I was going to either sell drugs, or be with a man that sold drugs and could provide for me, be another one dead on the streets or in jail. That’s was what was real for me. Then I joined Mill Street Loft, and through the program and the arts they helped me achieve a dream and most importantly a future.”

— Imani, Art Institute Alumna

We are proud to report Imani graduated from high school, earned a full merit-based scholarship to Maine College of Art and is now studying to be a social art activist, so that one day she can help students like herself. Support from donors like you helped change Imani’s life.
