I began Chicago Lost and Found in 2007 because I saw a need. As creative programs continue to disappear and budgets for the arts are cut, I feel compelled to help reverse this tragedy. With limited funds but a lot of passion, I can do my part by using the junk most people throw away. Where most people see trash, I see beauty.
Chicago Lost and Found is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to creative transformation. We are committed to rescuing the discarded and unwanted. Through re-purposing, we create value, which in turn provides creative opportunities to build and support the community.
