Obsessions Gift Shop owner, Betty Proctor, founded the non-profit MPAC (Motivating People through Arts and Crafts) with the vision to provide a space where persons with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Communication Disorders can learn employment, social, and life skills. MPAC intends to garner opportunities for financial independence, increase job retention by employing persons with ASD to develop leadership, social, and life skills that reduce anxiety. The project serves ages 13 to 25 in the Greater Tallahassee area into the Big Bend Region. MPAC was organized in March 2020, with the goal of enhancing friendships and acquaintanceships through arts and crafts.
