Telic Empowerment hosts a free live streamed and recorded art education event to children and young adults, ages 3-30, who have a love of art! This event is facilitated by a disabled art instructor.

Strokes for a Cause

This is an annual art education event designed to celebrate the talents and artistic abilities of our disabled amateur artists, ages 7-30, and showcase their masterpieces at our annual fundraising auction. Participants will participate in an inclusive art education class and create an original, themed masterpiece.
Telic Cares Emergency Relief Fund
Telic Empowerment understands that many families have hard times occasionally. For families of individuals with special needs these times can be especially devastating. Sometimes, all a family needs is a little help to get back on their feet. Telic Cares will be able to provide temporary relief to special needs families in the areas of finances, food, or medical expenses. Each potential applicant will be carefully selected, and a specific, individual need will be met, based on the application received.
