The Foundation + Creative Steps

Founded by parents of children with special needs, The Aurelia Foundation, and its day program, Creative Steps, has a vision of a lifestyle that maximizes the potential of each individual, for a lifetime of growth and service.

The Aurelia Foundation supports state-of-the-art programs that respect, nurture and truly enrich the lives of those we serve. We invite you to join us in raising the standards for young adult day programs, and raising public consciousness about the benefits of doing so.
