Using the Arts to heal, beautify and create wealth
After seeing the disabled, deformed and many artists neglected, a seven year old Regina Mack (Jones) started a club to help them. She would walk a mile many days selling beechnut candies, katydids and lemonade with her youth band that she led while playing the violin. All of her supporters played their plastic musical instruments marching down the street behind her. When she became a teenager she wanted it to become an organization . In 1982, the corporation became a non-profit 501c3. Since then thousands of families, individuals and businesses have received free products, training, jobs, entertainment, resources and support from CAD. Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. Corporation for Artistic Development (CAD), Inc. emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. Using artistic development, CAD has beautified communities and lives. We’re an organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support.
