The primary mission of Arts & Services for Disabled is to provide life-long learning, community service and career opportunities through the creative arts for people with disabilities in an environment of warmth, encouragement and respect.

We believe. . .

...all people, regardless of functional capability, have a right and responsibility to contribute to the well-being of their community and be gainfully employed in an occupation of their choosing;

. . . an informed and supportive community must play a vital role in removing the barriers to full involvement and inclusion;

. . .people should have access to the expressive arts in vocation, education, and leisure;

. . .people have the right to express and practice their cultural and artistic heritage;

. . .being treated with dignity and respect fosters personal growth, thus our philosophy:

love before learning.
