Showcasing the Talents of Artists with Developmental Disabilities

Inclusive Housing Resources hosted an art show featuring original works of art by more than 50 adults with developmental disabilities at its office on October 21, 2021. All of the submissions were phenomenal depictions around the theme of what home is. Home is much more than a building. It’s something to take pride in. Everyone deserves a safe and affordable home to make their own. 

“Showcasing the artistic talents of our community and brightening the hallways of our office served as the perfect reason to host this art show,” said IHR CEO Gina Gehm. “These pictures are a visual representation of the work we do, providing homes for individuals with disabilities in the region.” 

For this competition, IHR supplied the art materials and partnered with InsideOut Art Studio to judge the entries. First, second and third place winners and an honorable mention were named. IHR awarded Kings Island passes (1stplace), a restaurant gift card (2nd place), a movie streaming service gift card (3rd place) and a piece of art glass and gift certificate (Honorable Mention) to the winners. The plan is for this artwork to fill the hallways of the IHR offices. 

Inclusive Housing Resources manages the Housing Network of Hamilton County and Partnerships for Housing.  Through these organizations IHR provides high quality, safe, affordable and accessible housing for adults with disabilities in Butler, Hamilton and Clermont Counties. IHR staff also perform accessibility environmental modification services for individuals with coverage under their Medicaid Waiver.
