The Center owns and operates two social enterprises as a means to provide training and employment opportunities for people with brain injuries, autism and other disabilities in the St. Louis area. A social enterprise is a business formed with socially conscious guiding principles. For the Center, that means programs designed to train, employ and advance the lives of people with disabilities and creating self-sustaining and viable businesses that will serve the community in many different ways. All of the products from the Center’s social enterprises are handmade, packaged and sold with an integrated workforce. In addition to training and jobs, 100 percent of the proceeds of the businesses go to support the Center’s mission.
