Our Communities, Ourselves

Growing together with you, right where you are!

ARTZ Philadelphia is both a person-centered and a community-based organization. What does this mean in practice? It means that we take our lead from those we serve. It means that we learn and grow through our community partnerships and are shaped by the individual members of the ARTZ Philadelphia community as a whole, from our neighbors living with dementia in North Philadelphia to care partners throughout Philadelphia’s suburbs to people from around the country who have been joining us online since the COVID pandemic brought them to us. We strive to be of, by, and for the Philadelphia neighborhoods in which our program participants live and also to learn from and listen to every individual who comes through our doors (physical and virtual).
