What We Do
Creative Abundance Consulting is based in the interconnectedness of community and the existing wealth of the creative spirit.
"To say that changing our program over to Creative Abundance has been life changing sounds cheesy – but it’s true! The excitement and enthusiasm that they brought to the program has transformed the way our consumers feel about their day program. Watching the interaction, creativity, and talents grow on a daily basis is amazing. People who have been known in the past to be a wall flower are now out in the community spreading the message about the new and exciting things that we are working on. The end result has been a tremendous amount of community outreach that we really struggled to achieve in the past. Our local community has embraced our effort and industries are finding it easy to partner with us for their “upcycle-able” items that they otherwise would have gotten rid of. The collaboration has created a new buzz for us – something all agencies are always trying to pursue!" - Michelle Leonard-Smith, CEO/Executive Director of Abilities Services in Crawfordsville, IN
