Steinmetz Hall

“It’s so close you can almost hear it.”

“Decades of dreaming, planning and hard work helped us finish phase 1: Dr. Phillips Center as you know it today. But things will look a lot different in 2020, when Steinmetz Hall and The Green Room open their doors, and phase 2 fulfills the vision of everyone who’s been involved.” Read the full article on how the construction is coming along!

The Caring for the Caregiver Seminar

Using theater as inspiration for caregivers to identify and share their feelings, the Foundation partnered with the Orlando Shakespeare Theater, The University of Central Florida and Central Florida Community Arts to bring this seminar model to the public.  

The model resources are provided by a team of community leaders:  Dr. John Guarneri, Past President of the Medical Staff at Advent Health and Currently Chair and Director of Healthcare and Spirituality at Advent Health; Mary Ellen Philbin, CEO of Share the Care; Diana Silvey, Vice President of Programs at Winter Park Health Foundation and Heidi Isenhart, Partner and elder care attorney at Shuffield Lowman.  Their ongoing support and expertise refined the seminar model, providing key facilitation and resources.  Going forward, CFCArts will bring the seminar model to our community caregivers on an ongoing basis.  Thanks Joshua Vickery, Executive Director at CFCArts.

We at The Pabst Steinmetz are grateful for our community partners whose hard work over the past year created a sustainable model.  Special thanks to playwright Steve Yockey whose inspired play, “Blackberry Winter” forms the basis of the model.
