Spectrum Designs - Customized Printed T-Shirts and Apparel - Offering Gainful Employment to Individuals with Autism
Spectrum needs your help to expand!
In March of 2013 we expanded into a larger space and secured higher volume producing equipment.
This allowed us to provide steady part time work for at least 6 more young individuals with autism, and hundreds of hours of vocational training to many local teens and young adults with special needs.
Please assist us in our efforts in creating more more opportunities for these exceptional and highly capable individuals.
These are the faces of hope and inspiration. Your gift makes a real difference, in the lives of real people...
