MissionOur mission is to provide an innovative vocational and residential commuity for adults with special needs, and to change the way the world views this population.
What We DoOur participants, who we call "Citizens," are adults with challenges such as autism, brain injury, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, epilepsy, and other diagnosed genetic differences. BiG believes that these individuals each possess unique talents and abilities, and we strive to give them the platform to share those gifts with our community.
Everything they make is sold in a beautiful gift shop (voted the Best Boutique in Georgetown the last three years in a row), a cafe (with a five-star rating on Yelp), and an online store. We have 80 Citizens on 3 campuses who have become artisans, bakers, gardeners, card makers, jewelry makers, and more.
