Mission Statement

AFTA’s vision, in the Washington D.C. region and beyond, is to model and promote how very important dignity and compassion are in the care of older adults, and that arts intervention strategies provide accessible and uplifting ways to cope with changing abilities as we age.

As the region’s leading arts service organization delivering life-enhancing and innovative experiences to older people -- in day care centers, nursing homes, assisted living and community centers -- AFTA’s customized arts engagements are led by trained artists and designed to minimize the effects of ranges of physical and cognitive challenges.

Immersion in visual, musical, performing, literary, and intergenerational arts programs sparks the memory, lifts the spirit and creates social bonds, all so vital to impaired, vulnerable and isolated older adults.

You can read more in The State of AFTA, our most recent Annual Report.
