For more than four years, Awakening Minds Art has provided therapeutic art and athletics as a way to help reach individuals with special needs or those who benefit from one-on-one instruction, offering  services in-home as well as at various area facilities. Now, AMA has partnered with Trends TOO!, a downtown party destination, to share space at 515 South Main St.

AMA can host activities in the front part of the space, while Trends TOO! will continue to host parties in the back room, which can also be used for AMA  activities when scheduling allows. (AMA will continue to do home and facility visits when appropriate.) New at the downtown space is a sensory station, where clients and caregivers can experience various items such as weighted blankets and affordable toys. “I just feel this will take us to new heights,” says Sarah Crisp, the organization’s director. “We will definitely be taking advantage of the space by offering more group activities.”
