BENEFITING: Austin Special Chicago
Jusino Insurance Services
Austin Special Chicago is a non-profit organization whose mission is to meet the needs of individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities, especially those with severe and profound mental retardation. They provide training and education so that they may have more fulfilled and enriched lives. One of the many programs offered is the Art Program, designed to facilitate and guide individuals who show a strong inclination to express themselves through the visual arts. The objective is to help them develop their skills, nurture their talent and provide an opportunity for their art to be recognized and shared. They exhibit, promote and sell the artists' works as a means to provide earned income and a sense of personal achievement. We are raising funds to support the Art Program of Austin Special Chicago and help the adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities, so they can express themselves, achieve their passion and integrate into the wider arts community.
