purpose place

We are rewriting the story of Special Needs inclusion through our boutique thrift store where we create jobs, do job skills training, life skills development, and practice rich community. We encourage creativity and entrepreneurship in the special needs community by offering their handmade goods for sale in our store and give 100% profit back to the seller. We are founded and led by a group of special needs parents, educators, and individuals that understand and struggle with the story of inclusion.

We want a place where every person with a special needs diagnosis and their families belong. We seek to advocate on their behalf to create more job opportunities in the city. We long for every person to pursue what they are passionate about and for their voice to be heard…so they can write their own story.
