What is SAVE?
In 1972 a small group of parents came together to provide for a better life for their children with intellectual disabilities and other developmental challenges, including autism, Downs Syndrome, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and visual and hearing challenges. From their commitment and dedication, St. Clair Associated Vocational Enterprises, Inc. or SAVE was born.
Over the years the face of SAVE has changed. New programs have been added, as well as new people and new ideas. But the organization’s mission has remained constant: to help adults with developmental challenges achieve their fullest potential and live productive and happy lives with dignity and respect.
How Can We Help You?
You name it and more than likely, our consumers can do it. From stuffing envelopes to more complex assembly and packaging procedures to hands-on piece work and machine-operated manufacturing, we are ready to meet your needs.
How Can You Help?
There is a lot of room for new people at SAVE We need volunteers for our programs and fundraisers. We need companies and businesses to offer employment to our consumers, both individually, and through the use of our Sub-Contract Services. We need friends and neighbors to purchase our Christmas Cards, participate in our Golf Tournament and other fundraising efforts.
There are other ways to contribute to SAVE through its Foundation, including gifts, life insurance, bequests in a will or trust, and through other tax planning methods.
