Promoting Art, Creativity, and Employment is our community-based day service that supports people who are nearing retirement age, temporarily unemployed, or working part time and or for whom working full-time is not a goal. PACE operates much like employment supports, beginning with the person, their particular interests and talents. People are given the opportunity to meet other community members with whom they can share their common interests.
Services include volunteering at other non-profits, artistic pursuits, classes, recreational activities and more.
This service operates much like the employment supports. It begins with the person, their unique interests and talents, and their communities. We strive to connect people with their senior centers or other businesses doing activities that are of particular interest so that people are feeling fulfilled & productive. Ideally, people are being given the opportunity to meet other community members with whom they can share their common interests. Some activities that people have enjoyed are: tending a garden, playing pool, going to a horse show, taking a painting class, archery, and attending a cooking class.
