Although we are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have taken our current exhibition online and are still supporting the Ken Knight Drive community and members of the refugee community through food distribution in partnership with a beautiful collaboration of local farmers.  We are eager to stay connected.  Follow our Facebook and Instagram pages or sign up for our enewsletter.  Be well, do well, care for your neighbors, and wash your damn hands!

Yellow House

After weeks of hoping for bigger, bolder solutions for the impending JEA disconnections that will begin on July 7th we are stepping in to stand with residents of the Ken Knight Drive community in whatever ways we can. Most importantly, we are sharing information about the upcoming disconnections for the bill that will abruptly come due after a pause on shutoffs since the start of the pandemic. For many, the challenge has only deepened as they are out of work, coping with health crisis, and dealing with the cumulative effects of the lockdown. We are providing basic info through flyers, yard signs in the neighborhood, and conversations about opportunities for support through United Way, other grants, and JEA payment plans. At Yellow House we are going to direct funds to pay the JEA bills for those who do not qualify for or are struggling with accessing the above funds. We have a list and have begun, with our limited resources, to clean the slate so that people are empowered to move forward into what remains a difficult time.

We know this doesn’t fix the systemic issues that got us here or the corruption and apathy at the governmental level that prioritizes politics and profit over people, but if we can keto lights and water on for just a few families, elders, and returning citizens then that’s what we’re going to do.

TO SUPPORT THIS EFFORT visit this link www.yellowhouseart.org/support/. We have FIVE days. Every cent will go to clearing these JEA debts. Thank you! 💛💛💛
