arts

Like so many other parents who have disabled adult children, I started to visit various agencies and came across Rimland. Although letting my daughter live somewhere else was maybe the hardest choice in my life, I knew it was the best decision for her. Within the first day she was with Rimland, she adjusted so well. Every time I visit her at her group home, she is smiling and happy. I can never thank Rimland enough for the kind loving care they provide.

Expanding arts opportunities
The completed mural

Rimland’s art program has been expanding over the past few months, and the changes are quite noticeable at DT. In addition to daily craft projects, we have begun to expand our wall murals, not only to beautify DT, but to showcase the hard work and talents of the individuals at Rimland.

Work in progress
The penny table

We are also making a penny table—a table where the top is made of over 100 pennies that individuals have put together. Creating the penny table is both a fun exercise and a great way to practice fine motor skills.

Chalkboard

We have also installed chalkboards throughout DT, so that individuals can always stay creative and communicate in a visual manner.
