Artwork by Homeless Men on Display in Tremont Cafe

Joseph's Home Residents Display Paintings at Grumpy's Cafe; Works on Sale

at St. John West Shore Hospital's Festival of the Arts

CLEVELAND, July 2 /PRNewswire/ -- An exhibition of paintings by homeless men in the Joseph's Home Art Program is now on display at Grumpy's Cafe, 2621 West 14th Street, in the Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland.

The exhibition includes several paintings from residents of Joseph's Home, a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System and the only transitional housing facility of its kind in Northeast Ohio. Joseph's Home provides home health care for homeless men recuperating from illness or injury. The Art Program, recently begun and led by Joseph Home Board Chair William M. Denihan, current President of the Cuyahoga County Mental Health Board, provides participants with art instruction and lessons about various artists and methods. The program engages the residents and provides a creative outlet as they recover.

"When we first began this art program, the Joseph's Home residents participating in the art program were surprised with the quality of the paintings. They have realized that they have a tremendous gift to offer through their creativity and individual styles."

Due to the energy and support for this art program, Denihan now hosts the art instruction twice per week.

"Our men are normally limited as to ways they can express themselves," said Georgette Jackson, executive director of Joseph's Home. "We want them to stay invested in what they are doing, and this is a way for them to have something to look forward to and help build their self esteem."

The paintings are on display at Grumpy's Cafe, until July 10. In addition, Joseph's Home residents participating in the Joseph's Home Art Program will be selling their paintings at the St. John West Shore Hospital's Festival of the Arts July 11 - July 13, with proceeds benefiting Joseph's Home.

About the Sisters of Charity Health System

Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, the Sisters of Charity Health System was established in 1982 as the parent corporation for the sponsored ministries of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine in Ohio and South Carolina. In 1999, Sisters of Charity Health System formed two Ohio not-for-profit corporations with University Hospitals to equally own and operate St. John West Shore Hospital, St. Vincent Charity Hospital, Mercy Medical Center, Cuyahoga Physician Network, West Shore Primary Care and Professional Medical Equipment. Through this equal ownership, the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine continue their legacy of high quality, compassionate care that began at the time of the founding of these organizations.

The Sisters of Charity Health System is the sole sponsor of Sisters of Charity Providence Hospitals, a leading cardiovascular center in South Carolina, which includes Providence Hospital/Providence Heart Institute and Providence Hospital Northeast in Columbia, South Carolina. The organization also oversees three grantmaking foundations located in Cleveland and Canton, OH and Columbia, SC. Each foundation sponsors significant community initiatives and collaborations that address causes and consequences of poverty.

Other health and human services and education-related organizations within the Sisters of Charity Health System include Cleveland's Joseph's Home, a unique residential care center for homeless men, Canton's Early Childhood Resource Center for people working in childcare in all settings; and Healthy Learners, a South Carolina health care resource for children from low-income families. The Sisters of Charity Health System also provides residential eldercare services at Regina Health Center in Richfield, Ohio and Light of Hearts Villa in Bedford, Ohio. Light of Hearts Villa is jointly sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati.
