“As an entrepreneur, you offer an incredible advantage to start up companies. In this new economy, having full access to a world class manufacturing and packaging facility puts your customers on equal footing with much larger companies. As a small business I can enter the marketplace without having to hire, train, and supervise a workforce.”

Handi-Crafters started as a very small, make-shift operation. A group of parents felt their adult disabled children should have something meaningful to do during the day. With only six “clients” and a church basement, Handi-Crafters was in business.
Their first contract was rolling newspapers used as stuffing for a
furniture company. Today we serve over 400 individuals with an expanded array of employment services. We have two buildings on our campus with
fourteen shops running from 8am to 3pm, five days a week. Our 40-
plus customer list includes Fortune 500 companies and numerous entrepreneurs. We are no longer simply a sheltered workshop striving to provide meaningful activities to a handful of adults with disabilities; we are part of several vital supply chains for large companies and we are the affordable solution for several start-up enterprises. We are an offsite temporary labor force ready at a moments notice, allowing companies to respond quickly as their business ebbs and flows. Most importantly, we are a real place of work where our workers come each day ready to “get the job done.” They are proud of their paychecks. For many, they have come to depend on the money they earn to help them live more independently. www.handi-crafters.org
