What customers are saying:

AMAZING! My oldest daughter attended many of Cathleen’s events in the early days of Under the Horizon, which always exceeded our expectations. More recently, when my kindergarten class experienced an unimaginable loss, Cathleen came through for me again! Thank you for the beautiful, spiritual, patient, amazing experience that my kindergarten class had with you in making prayer thumbprints in memory of our friend.

UTH provides the space and talented staff to for Easterseals of Central/Western PA’s afterschool program two afternoons a week. My son enjoys being with a group of teens with assorted special needs. Fun activities include stunning art which now graces the walls of our home It gives my partner and I two afternoons when we can relax, do chores and catch up on life. We know our son is challenged and cared for in a loving space.

Before my students entered the building of UTH, they felt extremely welcomed! Cathleen & her crew displayed our school name on an easel at the entrance. This was just the start to an amazing afternoon filled with compassion, acceptance & understanding. As my students learned about the process of throwing/molding clay & having an opportunity to each paint their own item, Cathleen identified the specific needs of my students so that they experienced a joyful day! Thank you UTH for the educational & social opportunities you allowed us to experience on our field trip!

Cathleen and her team are unbelievably easy to work with, and produce gorgeous results. The studio is a place filled with warmth and love, and it feels good to support an organization that does such great work in the community. I cannot recommend them highly enough!
