Family Resources and Community Connections (FRCC) will be launching a new program. It’s called ‘Arts and Wellness: Expressions from the Inside,’ and along with our newest partner, Regional Arts Commission of Saint Louis, we will help counselors with facilitating older adults learning to handle expressions from the inside out.

This program is for a targeted audience of adults, 50 years and older, promoting mental and emotional well-being through the arts. Using dramatic theatrical events, participants create personal stories and scenes.

–Interaction, Socialization, Cohesiveness, Sharing of Experiences, Fun and More–
