Day Programs

This year, how we provide services has changed, but why we do this work has remained the same. It is the dedication of people like you that allows us to provide essential and exceptional services based on what is best for the individuals we support – no matter what comes our way.

Your donation reimagines services and spaces to support a full life for participants like Patricia.






On a normal day at Cedars Textile Arts Collaborative, you’d find Patricia tending to the garden, weaving a new textile, painting her next masterpiece, or cooking up a delicious vegetarian meal to share with other program participants and staff. She loves socializing with friends, seeing her art in exhibitions at Artist Within – A Cedars Gallery, and taking lots of photos.

While these days are anything but normal, Patricia has carried her passion for creative activities during Shelter in Place from her home. She sees friends and staff over Zoom classes and enjoys putting her cooking skills to use and learning more through Cedars online cooking classes. Her love of food also inspired her latest art piece, painted at home and recently sold in our online exhibition, “Delicious!”

Like the true artist she is, Patricia relives her favorite moments and activities paging through her homemade photo albums, reading past journal entries, and sharing stories with staff and friends over Zoom. While she looks forward to the day when she can return to Cedars Textile Arts Collaborative  site, she is still finding creativity and connection in new and meaningful ways.

Our needs are greater now as we continue to keep individuals at Cedars safe, healthy, and engaged in enriching activities. Your donation today will have twice the impact in supporting individuals like Patricia.
