Success Story

Gabby

Gabby has been a gifted artist since she was a toddler. When she joined OFA’s Community Engagement program in 2016, she was able to explore and share her love for art with her Direct Support Professional (DSP) Shaun, who is also a gifted artist.  In the fall of 2021, OFA facilitated an Art Day at the park. With a demand for authentic artistry, OFA reached out to Gabby to help lead a body painting activity. With great enthusiasm and the support of Shaun, Gabby put her skills in action and enjoyed the opportunity to lead such an exciting exercise.
