Inclusive Community for Creativity

Arts & Crafts For The Disabled in Nebraska

In an effort to further empower and enrich our people, the Create-ables program was developed and incorporated into our organization and service offerings.

In an effort to further empower and enrich our people, the Create-ables program was developed and incorporated into our organization and service offerings. Through Create-ables, we are working toward building an “Inclusive Community for Creativity” for our people — allowing them to enjoy teamwork with one another, as well as working alongside people without disabilities in order to promote inclusion and develop useful life and vocational skills.

The projects created through our Create-ables program can be found at local art events, craft shows and pop-up shops throughout the area.

Create-ables
HoH has always emphasized the importance of creative interaction between our people and the community. Our studio supports our mission of inclusion by empowering our people as creative individuals. Create-Ables is open to the public, and allows people to create and design pieces with the help of our people.
Work Bench
One way that we enrich our Create-ables program is through our fully-operational wood shop here at Hands of Heartland. Our wood shop is a safe, inclusive place that provides support and assistance for our people as they develop the creative pieces ordered by the public.
Enclaves
Our enclave program is a wonderful opportunity for our people to work within larger companies, practice vocational skills, and earn money. A stepping stone to community employment, the enclave program allows our individuals to work alongside people who are non-disabled, preparing them for the workforce.
