Competitive employment is the goal for many of our program participants. A stepping stone toward that goal is training and employment at the Boutique. The Boutique enables Linwood Center program participants to gain experience and develop employment skills in a structured and supportive environment, preparing them for the competitive workforce.
We know the key to successfully employing people with disabilities is identifying and building on their strengths and then providing them the support they need to succeed. From processing new merchandise to helping customers, the Linwood Boutique allows individuals living with autism to enjoy the satisfaction that comes with productive employment.
All store merchandise is donated, and we rely on our community and supporters to help us stock the Boutique with new and gently-used items in excellent condition. Donation info
