Our enterprise story

Our first student piloted the Adult Day Program in the fall of 2018. Our goal was to not just give our adult day students a place but to offer a complete environment in which to thrive. Part of that was teaching students employability skills and doing our part to ensure they were employed. We began to expand our on-site enterprises to help achieve that goal.

We currently have two active enterprises. Coffee Sales and Distribution in a partnership with Two Brothers Coffee Roasters and the Made to Inspire Boutique. We hired our first two student employees in February of 2020. They work packaging and distributing coffee or making t-shirts and other apparel in our boutique. All purchases made in our store will help continue to employ adults on the autism spectrum.

Two Brothers Coffee

In a partnership with Two Brothers Coffee Roasters, Turning Pointe Autism Foundation offers 3 unique coffee products. Turning Pointe Blend (medium roast). Turning Pointe Bold (dark roast), and decaf. This partnership and every package purchased allows us to keep individuals with autism employed.

The Birdhouse Lady

This creative business designs, builds, and sells hand-crafted, high-quality birdhouses, bird feeders, and bee houses with a mission to raise money for charitable organizations that make a positive difference in people’s lives. Turning Pointe has partnered with this business and students help paint birdhouses and any funds received from The Birdhouse Lady go to scholarships that help underprivileged individuals attend Turning Pointe Autism Foundation. We are so grateful for their generosity and partnership!
