What is the Center for Abundance?

Envision a spacious, climate -controlled, friendly environment where people can have an ongoing forum to share their talents and skills with others of different ages, cultures, and backgrounds. Among other benefits, we envision the center as a place for helping young people find a broader array of interests, help those interests turn into skills, those skills into potential jobs, and with further training having those job skills turn into satisfying professions. Through such invigorating growth and positive involvement with healthy adults, we believe that the center will help prevent/reduce delinquency, drug abuse, and other unhealthy behaviors in young people.

Over the last 3 years, the founder, Ryan Hulbert, Ph.D., has held many meetings with hundreds of people in creating potential partners for the center. Letters of support have been collected to bolster grant opportunities for this exciting new proposed resource.

It is envisioned to be a multi-generational, cross-cultural, inter-faith creative art center. Other expected benefits are to help preserve the cultural arts and talents passed from one generation to the next, promoting greater community connectedness, improve senior health and involvement, reduce loneliness, increase appreciation of people of different cultures and backgrounds, and developing in young people an interest in activities other than digital devices, practice creative skills, and instill further desire for continued education and career development.

Helping individuals and families connect, survive, strive, and thrive!
