We Care Arts is a name we’ve heard and seen around the community – but we at Gem City Podcast did not know what this non-profit actually does and who they support. Our host Libby Ballengee got the scoop from WCA Executive Director Darlene Langhout in this fun and inspiring conversation!

We Care Arts believes in the healing power of creating and producing art that transforms physical, developmental, and mental challenges into a future rich with possibilities. They are guided by their vision that creating art compliments medical therapies.

As a 501c3 organization with 36 years of experience, We Care Arts increases confidence and artistic skill in a variety of individuals with varying disabilities and physical challenges. Founder Terry Schalnat began in 1983, changing disabilities into possibilities in the basement of a recreation center.

Since then, We Care Arts has grown to serve 1700 clients at more than forty off-site locations within the greater Dayton area. Alongside the executive director, the volunteer staff and board contribute more than 28,000 hours annually to this mission!
