Seniors suffering from one or more cognitive and physical disabilities can benefit from arts activities. Accommodating arts activities to the abilities of seniors offers greater benefits leading to a better quality of life. A senior community center in Hollywood, Florida, offers arts and crafts to senior citizens enrolled in a day care program. Lack of funding has affected many national art programs and is now threatening the viability of the institution that is the subject of the present study. Based on research and theoretical ideas about Geragogy and financing of non-profits, this modified action research investigation proposes ways to improve and offer sustainable solutions for the promotion of the senior community center's arts and crafts program.
