Lifeline Theater & Art is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization created to provide an outlet for unlocking the potential of children and adults with special needs through integrated theater and arts programs. We use singing, dancing, creating plays, artwork, song writing, poetry and gardening in a safe, nurturing environment while encouraging creative exploration, self expression, socialization and joy.
We create a safe, nurturing environment, each person is free to interact and learn what they like or don’t like. Their choices are valued and respected.
We believe in the transformative power of the arts. The role played by the arts in helping to heal illness is well-documented and persuasively argued.`
We believe creative expression leads to healing and growth. As we internalize the feelings and experiences of a creative process it draws us closer to our true selves, and invariably, it makes our lives richer.
We believe participating in arts programs improve cognitive, social and self discovery outcomes. Over time ones participation in an arts program is something that helps to define themselves and mirrors who they are.
We believe the healing that occurs is reciprocal. Opening up your heart to another actually brings out the best in you. Volunteering, giving to and caring for others is a bedrock feature of human nature.
