Get Involved

Be a part of something BIG!

Every day at TERI brings new opportunities, and new hope, to the children and adults we serve. Since our inception in 1980, we have been focused on a single goal:  To improve the lives of people living with autism, learning, and developmental disabilities as well as the lives of their families. As a local non-profit boutique, we rely on support from our community.

You can change lives with TERI!

TERI's numerous programs including TERI Inspired Resale and the Vocational Arts & Crafts Program offer meaningful and rewarding experiences for our students that change lives and change the way the world see people with autism and other developmental disabilities. We invite you to be a part of these transformational programs and feel the impact of supporting your community!
