Opportunities for All
Honeywell Offers Sensory-Friendly Programming
Much about the Honeywell Foundation has changed over the past 78 years, but there are still key components that have endured the decades. From one property to six. From a few programs to dozens. Our mission of providing artistic, social, cultural and recreational opportunities for all remains strong in 2020 (learn about our work during the pandemic here).
We do this not only through concerts and shows at the Honeywell Center, but also through our Educational Outreach Program serving children in the classroom, our Senior Outreach Program serving adults in assisted living facilities, and diverse programming at each of our six venues.
Indeed, the Honeywell Foundation’s mission to offer these kinds of opportunities to all truly means all, including those in the U.S. population who can sometimes be overlooked.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 1 in 59 children in 2018 was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, which is defined by the National Institute of Mental Health as “a developmental disorder that affects communication and behavior.” There are many great organizations dedicated to enriching the lives of these individuals, which aligns well with the Honeywell Foundation’s mission to bring joy and enrichment to all through the arts.
