About this site

Corbella is a work in process...like most people and things.  It began at Corbella street in Toano Italy in the hills of Modena/Reggio during a difficult period.  The idea was to have a place where people could create and share their creativity, process and works for the community as an outreach out to others.

Today it is being reborn with some of the original hopes and ideals.  We look to create loving and accepting experiences where people with special needs can be themselves and share their joy and gifts with the community.  We believe that special needs persons are here to teach the larger community about tolerance, love, celebration of the uniqueness of each person regardless of their abilities.

We gather in worship, with music, arts, physical activities and fun.  We create art together and share with the community.  It's a safe place where there's no fear of disapproving looks.  Corbella also seeks to create employment opportunities for special needs persons.
