Remembering Art O'Hara

Art O'Hara

It is with deep sadness that the Louise Graham Regeneration Center and R'Club Child Care Board Of Directors and staff announce the passing of our cherished Executive Director, Art O’Hara. This was completely unexpected and is truly heartbreaking for all that knew and loved Art. Please know that the leadership and staff are doing just what he would have wanted – focusing on the children and families in the community that we serve. Mayor Rick Kriseman said: “Art O’Hara used his time on Earth wisely. He made a difference, made our community better. The future of St. Pete is brighter because of Art and his focus on our children.”

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, July 27th at 2:00 PM.

It was Art’s vision to provide children, youth, and differently abled adults with high quality programming that supports success in school and in life. We will continue to honor his vision and do the work he so loved.
