Alchemia has been a blessing to my family for many years. My son was a client for 15 years and received so much support on many levels, as well as opportunities for artistic expression. He is now pursuing vocational opportunities, but I highly recommend Alchemia to any family who has a loved one with special needs and wants to be a part of a dynamic and supportive artistic community.
