CAD - HISTORY
CAD - Corporation for Artistic Development
HISTORY AND SUPPORT  
At the age of 17, CAD, Inc. was envisioned and founded by Detroiter, Regina A. Mack. Before coming to CAD youth, burn victims, participants with disabilities, senior citizens, struggling college students and youth from foster care were often forgotten, ignored and lonely.  Incorporated in January 1982 as a 501 C3, CAD has brought joy to people throughout Michigan providing grant writing, thousands of meals, donations, tutoring, trainings and economic empowerment opportunities to over 30,000 children, disabled, seniors, veterans, neglected aged out foster care youth and the homeless. CAD has produced hundreds of exciting performances in dance, television, theater, fashion, fine arts and music.
