April 2019 - Newsletter





In October, 2018 we moved from our first 1,800 square foot storefront to a fabulous 6,800 square foot space

in the core of Cave Creek, AZ. (And we’re still expanding!) Our calendar is filled with healthy activities and

special events. Our classes are evolving to meet the needs and desires of our wonderful community. For

example, the chair yoga class has grown from five participants to averaging 25!


We are blessed to have wonderful volunteers (from thirty years old to ninety-two), amazing teachers, and

faithful donors and shoppers. One of the things we are most proud of is the fact that we are an intergenerational community center. In any given week, children, families and older adults participate in our events. We provide specialized, life-enriching programs for people of all ages and all levels of health.


We currently provide specific classes for people who have learning disabilities, early Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s, COPD, and for stroke and cancer survivors. We address issues of mobility, relaxation, and depression outside a medical environment. Foothills Caring Corps brings clients for afternoon activities and local businesses have been encouraging and supportive. Many who attend are grieving or are new in town and come here to become part of a family. The benefits are many, both for them and

for us.


Our reputation as a healing arts and community center is growing. We have been approached by professionals from California, Iowa, and Idaho Falls to present other wellness topics. Our Community Center has hosted theatrical productions, rattlesnake safety classes, Women’s History Month events, a historical entertainment troupe, sacred drum-making seminars, and a Mandala Workshop for families - in addition to weekly health-related classes.


On April 20th we are hosting a water safety expo, and will be offering water safety, CPR, and first aid classes. A year-round indoor farmers’ market begins in April. This market will complement our mission of health

and wellness.


We are bridging the healthcare gap by providing education, support, and resources through the work we do at Infinite Finds. We provide an opportunity for those who otherwise could not afford these services. We do

suggest donations for many of our classes. By providing these encouraging and supportive services we have seen local residents step into a larger social community, grow in relationships, and begin to give

back. Our knitting group is working on the Magic Yarn Project, creating yarn wigs for children with cancer. They are also working together to create a community quilt to be auctioned off to benefit Infinite Finds Healing Arts and Community Center. Our art students and teachers are painting, sketching, designing jewelry, and weaving baskets, all in an effort to help us serve our neighbors and promote our programs.


Things are moving quickly around here. Since relocating to this new building, we have opened up two more

rooms. This allows us to rent more space for private meetings and events, bringing in much-needed revenue. We are blessed with great donations for the thrift boutique, but we need more to meet the cost of operating the center. With the winter visitors leaving, we also need more customers.


We are grateful for your faithfulness and generosity that has brought us this far! We need to build on that momentum to carry us through the summer to maintain our great services and continue to offer more.

Whether we are hosting thirty first-graders or celebrating the 92nd birthday of one of our “family” members,” we cannot do it without YOU!


There are many ways you can help us achieve our goals and satisfy our mission to positively affect those who may be lonely, disconnected, or underserved in our community. Here are a few ways:
