Hope's Hearts


Available sessions:
Tuesdays, February 4–25, 3:00–7:00 p.m.

People who have been abused or bullied, who struggle with low self-esteem, or who are looking for someone to love them are more vulnerable to human traffickers. Reducing vulnerability to trafficking became one of Freedom Cry's goals in June 2017, and the idea for the Hope's Hearts project was born.

Hope's Hearts is a community art project at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center. Give back to the community by helping create beautiful wind chimes with words of hope and crisis resources. The chimes are placed throughout Sheboygan County in hope that those who are vulnerable will find them, be encouraged, and reach out to the crisis resources. We encourage all ages to participate. 

All ages


The chimes include five words of encouragement on ceramic hearts, contact information for organizations that can help in crisis, and a call to encourage others. Workshop participants create ceramic hearts, stamp them with the selected words of encouragement, and assemble them into wind chimes. Together we can encourage those who are vulnerable in our community!

The five words are: 
Hope - courage to keep moving forward
Courage - strength to make the journey
Strength - inner power to withstand whatever comes
Faith - wings and sail of our dreams
Wisdom - guardian of our choices
