By: EngAGE, Inc
BURBANK, Calif. - July 25, 2022 - PRLog -- EngAGE has received a generous grant of $39,200 for two years from the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture through its Organizational Grant Program. OGP is Los Angeles County's longest-running arts grant program, providing funding for the diverse ecosystem of arts nonprofits that range in size, budget, and discipline—from arts education, to theater, music, and dance, to visual, media, and literary arts.
This funding will support EngAGE in Creativity, our community-based, multidisciplinary arts program taught by professional teaching artists with classes and events on-site at the affordable older adult and intergenerational apartment communities we serve. We are grateful for this acknowledgement of the value of our program.
EngAGE was founded in 1999 as More Than Shelter for Seniors and, in the last several years, we have adapted successfully to include multigenerational communities in our model. We work continuously to change lives across generations by transforming affordable housing into centers of community, learning, and well-being.
