ABOUT MCCLENDON CENTER
McClendon Center prepares people recovering from serious
mental illness to improve their quality of life. Our goal is to
provide our clients with the skills they need to live as
independently as possible. We do this by working with our
clients to maintain their physical and mental well-being while at
the same time helping them to obtain safe and affordable
housing, employment, and financial literacy. McClendon Center
also provides our clients with community and companionship.
Founded in 1980, we have a long and proud history of being
among the highest-rated behavioral health providers in the
District of Columbia. We provide a wide range of services and
supports such as art therapy and expressive arts therapy to more
than 1,100 DC men and women each year. A majority of our
clients live below the DC poverty line. About 30 percent of our
clients reside in shelters or are homeless. One hundred percent of
our clients have a primary diagnosis of severe mental illness and
at least 80 percent of our clients have at least one co-occurring
medical condition such diabetes, hepatitis C, or asthma. Above
all, at McClendon Center we view and treat all of our clients as
individuals not simply as diagnoses or statistics.

The process of making art and sharing it with others can
be a powerful transforming and empowering act. We are
honored to exhibit some of our clients' art, which
includes painting, drawings, photography, as well as
paper and fiber crafts. Some of our artists are here with
us tonight and we encourage you to meet and talk with
them about their pieces. Nick Denson, our art therapist
and artist-in-residence, is also here to help explain our art
therapy program and process.
Please enjoy this glimpse into our art program, purchase
any pieces on display (our clients earn half of the sale of
their art as commission), and take a chance at winning
one of our great raffle packages!
To practice any art
no matter how well
or badly, is a way to
Dennis Hobb

make your soul grow.
So do it.
