An unwavering entrepreneurial spirit and dogged dedication to excellence which benefits children and adults with developmental disabilities are just a few of the reasons Nazareth College earned the 2010 Community Partner award from Heritage Christian Services. Heritage relies on working with other agencies and the Community Partner award was created to honor those relationships.
Nazareth is dedicated to serving those with developmental disabilities and has been a model as an employer for people with disabilities. The College was also honored for it's innovation in partnering with Heritage Christian Services to shape the agency's creative arts therapy services which include music, art, dance, and massage therapy.
Nazareth supports a now-annual performance of the dance troupe "Heart of Dance" at the College's Arts Center, where dancers of all abilities can get the chance to perform on a professional stage.
