Focus on Art

The Char and Chuck Fowler Family Foundation awarded a multi-year grant of $15,000 to New Avenues for our Art Therapy Program.
This year, we received $5,000 as a matching grant for “CreateAbility, Exploring Ave. ART,” which was initially funded through Cuyahoga Arts and Culture. In 2016 and 2017, the funds will be used to pay for the costs of an Art Therapy intern and art-related field trips to the Cleveland Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Art and other institutions that display art, expanding individuals understanding and appreciation.
We are grateful to the Foundation for their generous support of our Art Therapy program. Since 1980, the men, women and children served by New Avenues have benefited from this unique therapy, an essential component in our programming through which we strive to enrich the lives of the individuals we serve.
Despite the absence of a federal or state mandate to provide these services and lack of reimbursement from Medicaid, New Avenues has been able to subsidize the program through grant awards and donations.
