ReFocus, Inc. is a non-profit human service agency which serves adults with differing physical and developmental needs. We are an organization of dedicated people offering opportunities for growth in a loving, trusting, and challenging environment. We value and encourage the enhancement of the whole person, each with unique talents and strengths. We also value the right of using these gifts to make informed life choices.
The Little Clay Studio is a ceramics cooperative offered to members of the ReFocus community, taught by Jessica Schlachter. In 2010, when ReFocus Inc. introduced pottery classes, no one predicted that it would grow into its own entity. In 2014, Jessica saw greater potential in the potters and founded The Little Clay Studio (TLC Studio). By providing an inspirational classroom structure, TLC Studio gives ReFocus clients the opportunity to follow their dreams as budding artists, to use their creativity and explore the potentials of clay while developing self-confidence. Since TLC Studio’s program creation, under the ReFocus Gilbane Community Center (GCC) umbrella in 2014, it has become a hybrid – part ReFocus and part its own entity. The Little Clay Studio highlights the opportunities ReFocus offers and recognizes the potential and success of our clients.
