Come Together Party
An event to bring together 125 of our African American and Latino program participants for a night of entertainment, food, and learning about one another’s cultures. One goal of our cultural diversity programs is to reduce isolation by identifying barriers that prevent Latino and African American seniors from accessing community services and assists in removing these obstacles.

A 12-week multi-cultural art class offered twice a year, designed for about 30 senior adults who have limited experience with creating art and or can not afford an art class. The series of classes also brings different cultures together by using art to break down barriers and stereotypes. This past year, we presented art pieces at the Lakeview Library, WPCRC, and The Overture Center, presenting multiple venues to provide exposure for your business.
