What we do

Work that’s simple. Work that’s safe.
Work that doesn’t feel like work.
That’s the secret to creating a
successful environment for
autistic adults.

  • Assembling parts. Building skills.

    Building skills.

    As a safe, comfortable and nurturing work environment that’s part of a true manufacturing company, employees at we make work with their hands in mini-teams to assemble and package small parts that will be used in vinyl fencing and railing products sold at leading home improvement stores.

  • Real products. Genuine pride.

    Genuine pride.

    With its puzzle-solving aspects and focus on a repeatable task, the work we make employees do plays to the strengths of most autistic individuals. But unlike the traditional experience of arts & crafts projects or “busy work,” we’re striving to instill the sense of fulfillment that comes from producing something of real value: the making of goods that every employee — and an entire community — can feel genuinely good about.

  • Nurturing potential. Fostering independence.
