Able ARTS Work (formerly known as Arts & Services for Disabled, Inc.) would like to thank the members of our Patron Society who have continued to support Able ARTS Work's mission, vision and growth.  The Patron Society honors members of the Able ARTS Work family who have a total lifetime of giving of $1200 or more towards our organization.

The purpose of the Patron Society is to give Able ARTS Work the financial ability to step in with creative solutions to provide the love, learning opportunities and life options that our students need.  Along with our hopes of growing the long-standing weekday programs we have been running for 33 years, we have also been working to expand our outreach programs such as Art on the Move, Mobile Arts Program, Accessible Arts Workshop, Creative Health and Wellness Clinic and exhibits and galleries to increase awareness and become a greater resource to our community. 

Some immediate goals which gifts from current and new members of the Patron Society will contribute to are:

  • Building a source of revenue to be used for R&D, allowing Able ARTS Work to get new programs off the ground
  • Funding high-priority initiatives such as offering financial support to low-income families so their children can attend the Creative Health and Wellness Clinic
  • Improving and enhancing Able ARTS Work services that require a special effort to raise capital funds outside of normal budgets
  • Raising funds required as an up-front investment to accept an offer from CalTRANS to donate a van to expand our transportation fleet and allow access to more members of our community
