“I feel like we are a family here”

-Mike Deguili (Woodshop Client)


“When I came here I had a number of challenges mostly mental and some mechanical, when I’m in the shop I don’t stutter at all, everyone here is use to working with people who have challenges and I’m really amazed by how well these people overcome their challenges by being able to discover new things that they enjoy”

- Alfred Weston (Woodshop Client & Volunteer)
