Arts for All, Inc., a non-profit corporation, began in 1979. In August of 1985, Third St. Kids was founded by Marcia Berger, an innovative pediatric physical therapist, to provide an after-school program in the performing arts for children with and without disabilities. In 1986 the non-profit corporation was turned over to Marcia Berger by its founder and thus Arts for All, Inc. and Third St. Kids became one.

Arts for All, Inc. currently provides special considerations during the planning and programming for persons with physical disabilities, visual limitations, hearing impairments, learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, emotional disturbances, mental illness, behavior problems, autism, and seizure disorders. All programs attempt to provide a quality art focus for children and youth with and without disabilities.
