My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Aurelia Foundation , Pacific Palisades, CA, USA
Aurelia Foundation's Creative Steps Community Integration Program allows my special needs son to have experiences usually reserved for neuro-typical unchallenged adults. The program allows individuals to help direct their program based on their desires and interests are nurtured. The program has established affiliations with local businesses, a city government, a synagogue, a church, a university and other nonprofit organizations offering the participants work exposure in an organic farm, working with animals, opportunities in arts & crafts, painting, singing, dancing, working out, cooking, volunteering and micro-enterprise development. They get to have a gallery opening where their artwork is on display at the university for the year. When not transported by Aurelia vehicles, the participants learn to ride public transportation. They visit museums, libraries, farmers markets, parks, community centers, take hikes, ride bicycles, go to the beach and many other educational and entertaining locations. Also important, the program allows its participants to have friendships they would not otherwise have the opportunity to experience. This program can only maintain and expand its high level of care and experiences with generous donations. Please join me in supporting the Aurelia Foundation.
