ACHF Arts Access
Theatre L'Homme Dieu will offer transportation to and from the theatre without charge to up to 50 individuals with mobility issues for each of the six Sunday matinee performances. We will measure the success of reaching our project goals through the number of individuals taking advantage of the free transportation. An exit survey of Activities Directors in the various involved facilities will also measure their assessment of the impact of the service on their residents. Those individuals using the free transportation will also be surveyed regarding their experience in using the service and attending the shows. We believe expansion of accessibility broadens the theatre’s audience and visibility in the community. We can further measure the success of our project by increases in ticket sales and individual support from new donors.
The seniors were enthusiastic about the service. The overall indication is that this would be a welcome service in the future. The responses were such that there is motivation to have conversations with and potentially collaborate with Alexandria Area Arts Association to provide free senior transportation to Sunday performances at both our theaters throughout the year.
