Mobile Art provides activities in three different areas: low-income nursing homes, Alzheimer respite programs and adult day programs. All of our programs are FREE as our goal is to reach those who otherwise would not have access to art lessons. We are a tax exempt, 501(c)3 organization.
We are honored to announce that the The Alzheimer's Foundation of America has presented the Mobile Art Program with a grant in the amount of $5,000 to support our programs that improve the lives of those in our community living with Alzheimer's. AFA unites more than 1,700 member organizations from coast-to-coast that are dedicated to meeting the educational, social, emotional and practical needs of individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related illnesses, and their caregivers and families. Under AFA's umbrella, these organizations collaborate on education, resources, best practices and advocacy —all resulting in better care for people affected by the disease.
Our Founder and Executive Director, Theresa Bond Zelazny, has been selected as the 2015 recipient of the Bert Kruger Smith Vision Award that honors a person or organization whose vision has enhanced the older adult community and who has shown foresight and energy in implementing programs, services, or legislation that serves older adults.
