HOPE is on the MOVE!

and We NEED YOU

 

As a member of our HOPE Center for the Arts Family, we invite you to support HOPE and the 55 Artists & Performers that we currently serve and to assist us in expanding our reach. 

Our goal, this year, is to raise $75,000 which will go directly into the quality programming that enables us to fulfill our mission to transform lives of adults with intellectual disabilities through the arts. One third of the cost of our programming comes from donations from philanthropy. 

We cannot retain our quality programming without you. 

Who We Are

We are a multi-faceted visual and performing arts program designed to serve individuals discovering and displaying their talent, interest and motivation within the arts. Our program is excited to offer our artists a variety of classes for everyone to reach their full potential

What We Do

HOPE serves adults aged twenty-two years and above with developmental and intellectual disabilities such as, but not limited to:  Autism, Down Syndrome, Williams Syndrome, Savant Syndrome among many others.

Why We Do It

Over the years this dream of HOPE has given almost 600 Artists with Intellectual Disabilities the opportunity to pursue their love of music and/or art, promoting a sense of honor and dignity in  their work, all while inviting the community to recognize their Awesome Abilities.
