Leading the way towards a world where people with disabilities are fully included
Nearly 60 years ago, a small group of parents and community supporters decided to teach plant care to young adults with disabilities considered by most to be unemployable. Their goal was almost unheard of – jobs for people with disabilities. It was a bold idea for its time.
Today, Melwood remains unwavering in its founding vision – a world where people with disabilities are fully included. As a leading employer, advocate and preferred provider for people with disabilities, Melwood’s innovative strategies and programs empower people with disabilities to live, work, and play in the community.
