The Recreate Café Arts Program seeks to bridge the gap between the homeless and artistic communities. It allows members of the homeless community to exercise talents and gifts that they may not have an opportunity to use anywhere else, while inviting Chattanooga's artistic community to come alongside and minister with them.
The arts program is also a vehicle for other groups or performers who are looking for a venue to perform or rehearse. UTC and Chattanooga State students and Shakespeare Chattanooga have used the Cafe for rehearsals; professional and non-professional performers have held concerts and benefits.
