“And there have been periods of uncertainty. Yet the Lloyd Carr Harris Foundation has been our major supporter for all these years. Without their belief in the work we’re doing we would not exist today.”
When Lloyd Carr Harris died in 1993, he willed his assets to be used to start a charitable foundation. “Lloyd Carr Harris, who was my partner for 19 years, wanted the proceeds to go to medicine, education and music,” says Wells.
“They [CAHD] were training people in art therapy and they were helping the community at large. I just couldn’t see a downside to the whole program. There it was: music, education and medical work all in one. So it was a no-brainer from my point of view.”
The foundation began supporting the CAHD in 1998. In 2017 it renewed its commitment for another five years. “We are so thankful for their generosity,” Vosberg says.
