"To know that a place like Attleboro Enterprises exists and that there are people who understand those of us that don't fit the mold is amazing. In a world where people often point out what makes us different, it is wonderful to know that there is a place that...'Looks at everyone as a person first. A person who may have a challenge, but a person who can do anything with the right support and hard work.' "
- Mary Beth Richardson, Parent

What our friends say…
"I can't imagine how much poorer the community would be without AEI and Ernie Augat's support for it. The joy and happiness in that facility is remarkable."

“I find it difficult to single out just one person, since I appreciate and admire all that Attleboro Enterprises, and the staff at his home have done for my son.”
- Lucille Cavanaugh, Family Support Parent
"Heather, I just wanted to let you know how nice it has been to hear Josh come home and talk about the things he is participating in at the program. He loved the field trip and he really likes the library; he told me about the books he looked at. I was also thrilled to hear that he did meals on wheels. He told me that he "brought people their food" and he seemed to enjoy it. I really can't tell you the peace of mind that it has given me. So I want to thank you and everyone there who obviously worked hard to make this a positive transition for Josh. We appreciate everything."
- Tracey H., Mansfield Connections Parent
"I am honestly not sure that I have expressed this enough to you yet, but Derek just loves it there! He so needed this change when we made it! He loves the constant activity & the direction that he was most definitely lacking at the other program! We are so grateful to you for allowing him to join your program & for how you run things there, and to the great staff you have too! You do not know what a relief it has been not to be worrying every day at work how his day was at the program. As much as he likes his other program too, he misses when he is not in Mansfield. Thank you again for all you & your staff do!"
- Lisa, Mansfield Connections Parent
