Housing Is Healing T-Shirt

Please consider a sliding-scale/pay what you want donation starting at $15 for the shirt. If that amount is cost-prohibitive, we are also open to bartering. If you are interested in reserving a shirt, please email and we will keep you posted on the next available batch of shirts. Thank you!

An excerpt from the "Housing is Healing" Artist Statement:

The design of this hand-carved print emerged from my reflections on how low-barrier housing through Motels4Now brings healing--not only to our friends on the margins--but to our whole community.  The call expressed in the words of Fr. Greg Boyle to be, "the front porch of the house we all long to live in," has been echoing in my imagination and I like to imagine M4N as the front porch of our local community--a place to extend radical hospitality and welcome.

The poet Hafiz also  says, "we are house-sitting for God," reminding us that we are both guests and hosts in this house of life together. We want to be good house-sitters who remember our responsibility to steward our resources for the common good.

In my design, I have also included stylized goldenrod and asters, which speak to me of mutual flourishing, reciprocity, and a restoration of a habitat of welcome. I hope this example of native plants and pollinators can help teach us how to live together well in relationship--and perhaps not just how we might live together well, but how we might live together beautifully.
