Providing Support and Opportunities
MPAC and Obsessions Gift Shop gives opportunities to persons with a disability they and others can see their talents and potential. Statistics have shown a higher rate of unemployment or underemployment with persons on the Autism Spectrum. (See statistics below for unemployment and employment rate.) It also should be noted there is a lower job retention rate among persons with Autism due to social communication deficits. Currently more employers are beginning to hire persons with disabilities. We want to offer opportunities to enhance employment and entrepreneurship.
Personally we created Obsessions to provide an opportunity for financial stability and leadership for my daughter. I saw how beneficial it was for my daughter and we then started MPAC to offer opportunities to others.
