Profile:

Mr. Hilton originally joined CANY (then called Imagination Workshop) in 1978 while pursuing an acting career in New York. Working first as a theater artist and then as the Program Coordinator at the NYU-Cornell Medical Center program in White Plains, he left in 1982 to found a new therapeutic drama program for troubled adolescents in Orange County, New York.

Leadership Statement:

Creative Alternatives is the only organization in New York City providing trauma informed drama therapy programs on site at agencies serving children and adults with histories of trauma and violence. There is growing  recognition of alternative treatment models for trauma affected individuals and CANY has become a leader in the field.  Based on a three year strategic plan vision of growth, CANY has invested in development and secured major donor commitments towards this vision which includes relocation to a new home where we will launch our expanded training program and community presence.
