Welcome to Arts and Services for Disabled
On June 14, 2014, a supportive community gathered to provide ASD with the financial support to grow and expand life-changing programs that take place everyday. Together with Ami and Remo Belli, our friends, families and colleagues celebrated what is truly possible in our community.
ASD continues to respond creatively to meet rising new needs throughout Southern California. We continue to pioneer creative approaches to build bridges and cultivate a life of quality for our students, paving the way through our “Love Before Learning” philosophy. Helen Dolas, CEO/Founder gives guests an inspirational speech about ASD’s journey from 1982 to the present…and better yet, future!
