We exist to create opportunity and a better life for adults with intellectual disability.

Summer Street is a person-centered organization and it’s reflected in everything we do. People have the opportunity to volunteer or work in the community; to learn life skills and explore personal interests; or to work and train in our social enterprises or employment program.

As needs and interests change clients may be involved in any of our programs including: vocational, life enhancement, wellness, literacy, and employment. In-house social enterprises include catering and events, trophies, and mail services.

You will see that we interchange the words "employee", "client" and "trainee" throughout the site. Because we provide services based on a individual's interests, sometimes the same person is our client, sometimes our trainee and sometimes our employee.
