The Development of an Art Program at 3LPlace Community

This grant to 3LPlace was used towards the development of 3LPlace Community. The 3LPlace Community provides supports for adults with autism, offering a source of meaningful social engagement, recreation, and lifelong learning. It also helps individuals maintain housing and access to medical care, as well as supports them in their employment and education choices. Specifically, 3LPlace used its grant from the NLMFF to support the development of the art program 3LPlace Community in Somerville. Art has been important to 3LPlace since its inception, and they are firm believers in the importance of fine arts in personal and career development, and to support therapeutic expression. 3LPlace has two expressive arts therapists on staff. One is a photographer and painter; the other is an illustrator.
