SPEND LOCAL!!  Support the PERSON, not a "PROGRAM"!!  Small business ownership is possible for EVERYONE and for adults with disabilities..... IT JUST MAKES SENSE!!  

At the Frances Center, we provide supported self-employment for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities thereby enabling them the opportunity to CHOOSE their career path and work in a flexible environment where their choice is RESPECTED and HONORED!  
To provide this support, we need your help!!  Not only do we want you to come shop in our "abilimall", we also need your donations of any household items, furniture, and soon-your clothing!!- for repurposing and resell in our stores!  Unlike other local thrift stores, FCCE also accepts donations of raw materials such as bits and pieces of lumber, partial paints and other building supplies!  Thanks so much for all you do for FCCE!!
STAY TUNED for exciting news on the opening of our SECOND LOCATION!  This new store will focus on all things fabric!!  Clothing, linens, curtains.. ..anything fabric and the accessories!  This location will also offer AFFORDABLE alterations and repair work done by our associates and booth owners!  
We should be set to begin receiving fabric related donations by May 1!!  Do you know an adult with a disability that you think would be a good "fit" in this type store-setting and would just love to be self-employed?  Help us link up with them as we are accepting booth placements in this new store NOW!!  MORE DETAILS TO FOLLOW ON THIS STORE OPENING!!
