Exciting Things Are Happening!
We are thrilled to announce that we have secured a $100,000 grant from the HCBS Transition Compliance Fund. This money is designated for use in enhancing our Person Centered Plans for all adults across our 3 program locations. This funding will allow us train an in-house Person Centered Planning Facilitator, provide integral training for our current staff, and conduct our Person Centered Plans.
Welcome to the Team
We would like to extend a warm welcome to our new Director of Development, Lindsey Henderson. Lindsey is an experienced business development professional who brings a wealth of knowledge from her previous roles in fundraising, event management, client relations, and sales. She is responsible for pursuing grants, corporate giving, donor relations, and other initiatives to help further the mission of the Creative Steps program. She is driven by her compassion and insights learned from disabled members of her own family and her understanding of the value these programs bring to their lives. Please feel free to contact her with any future needs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A huge thank you to The S & L Marx Foundation of CT and the Enrichment Foundation for Handicapped Children for their generous donations! These funds will go towards our clients' arts and cultural experiences as well as to further enhance our client programming.
New Year New Look
Come visit us at our new website www.creativesteps.org. Across our platforms you may see more Creative Steps branding as opposed to Aurelia Foundation. Don't worry, you are still in the right place! We are simply focusing on promoting our amazing program to the public. Aurelia Foundation is still the parent organization. These changes will be seen on our website, Instagram, and Facebook. Please let us know if you have any questions!
