Carol Gibson

Founder, Executive Director
Compassionate Artists

Our focus is simple, improve the lives of financially disadvantaged seniors who no longer have the gifts of arts, dance, and music in their lives. We bring it to them and, more recently, have made online resources available to them. We believe that nothing else can replace the joy that the arts bring to one’s life.  

70% of those we serve have been abandoned by their families or have no living relatives and are surviving on Social Security and state health programs. These do not provide funding for the essential human need for music, movement, and to create. That’s where we come in.
