Overview


“Disability is not a brave struggle or courage in the face of adversity. Disability is an art. It’s an ingenious way to live.”­

- Neil Marcus


GRACE FISHER FOUNDATION MISSION 

Our mission is to enrich and empower those with mental and physical challenges through the arts. 

 

 

 

 

Instead of society imposing restrictions on what one with a disability cannot do, we as a society through the arts can bring joy, therapeutic movement and challenge the stigmas surrounding those with physical and mental disabilities. The arts are not only a vital means of self expression, but also can help to cope with daily struggles. The Grace Fisher Foundation will facilitate programs in the community in coordination with other nonprofits to bring music and art to those living with a disability. 

So please join us in bringing color and excitement to those that need it most!
