The Norton Museum of Art opened its doors to a group of special young adults for a private art tour and class. Several developmentally disabled adults, all Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County clients, painted and stenciled tote bags with their own original art.
GL Homes partnered with the Legal Aid Society to offer this unique experience to its Guardian Advocacy Project (GAP) clients.
GAP clients range in age from 26 to 32 years old. Many of them aged out of the foster care system and but for the Legal Aid Society, they would be homeless. Legal Aid Society, a nonprofit organization, serves as the health surrogate and legal guardian for these adults.
Since 2017, GL Homes has hosted the Legal Aid Society GAP clients at many interactive activities including golf lessons, bowling, swimming lessons, cooking classes and equine therapy.
The Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County is committed to providing high quality civil legal advice, representation and education to the disadvantaged of Palm Beach County in order to protect their personal safety, enhance their opportunities and living conditions, and promote self-sufficiency.
