HAYWARD -- Art and jewelry created by homeless people will be sold beginning Friday, and continuing through February at Snappy's Cafe in downtown.

The items being sold were made in Homeless Angels, a program that helps the homeless become self-sufficient by teaching them how to create art and jewelry and marketing plans, and develop self-confidence and a work ethic.

The program is run by South Hayward Parish; it is part of the Community Action Network job creation program. Proceeds will benefit Homeless Angels.

A reception is planned for 5 to 7 p.m. Feb. 8 at the cafe, 978 A St.
