Hospice of the Western Reserve recognizes Cuyahoga Arts & Culture with Community Builder Award

Cleveland (August 14, 2013) - Hospice of the Western Reserve has awarded Cuyahoga Arts & Culture with its Community Builder Award, which “recognizes an organization that provides exemplary support to Hospice of the Western Reserve’s vital role in the community.” Hospice of the Western Reserve receives funding through Cuyahoga Arts & Culture’s Project Support grant program for its art therapy programs for the bereaved.

“Cuyahoga Arts & Culture has done more than simply invest in the art therapy programs of our Elisabeth Severance Prentiss Bereavement Center; they have collaborated with us, inspired us, and shared our story,” said William E. Finn, CEO of Hospice of the Western Reserve. “They have enabled us to care for people who would not otherwise have known where to turn, and they have strengthened our community.”

Through its Healing Arts and Fabric & Feelings workshops held in Cleveland, Warrensville Heights and Westlake, Hospice offers art classes to help people through difficult times.
