The Extended Family is re-imagining the way in which adults with disabilities lead productive lives by fostering exploration, empathy, expression, and independence through meaningful engagement.
We meaningfully engage exceptional adults who rely on qualified support by providing a stress free environment where personal interests, passions, and unrecognized intellectual abilities are revealed.
Open the possibilities for adults of all abilities to create new ideas by providing a sanctuary for skill training, camaraderie, and a sense of belonging with the community at large.
"When I first started working with The Extended Family I was hesitant, but now I am comfortable. I was desperately lonely, but now I am much nearer my best self with this noble effort. This productive work helps me develop a real mastery of myself. I am part of a happy team in action, in a peaceful, hopeful place."
-Sean E, TEF Intern
