Founded in 1969, Atco, Inc. is located in Athens, Ohio in the beautiful Appalachian foothills.
Its’ mission is to provide employment opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities and help them achieve meaningful lives as productive members of the community. This is accomplished through vocational and life skills training and a variety of community-based activities where families, friends and other community members come together.
Vocational opportunities provided by Atco, Inc. include:
ProPoint, which employs workers who produce professionally imprinted pens, www.propoint.org
Passion Works Studio, a nationally acclaimed collaborative art studio, where artists with and without disabilities come together to create outstanding and beautiful works of art. While everyone present may have different abilities, the entire process requires the diverse abilities represented by all participants, “disabled” and “abled” alike. All are equally important, all are stakeholders and all involved learn a valuable and rare lesson – that a community is only as rich and as strong as the collaborative, collective visions and dreams of all members of that community.To learn more about Passion Works visit www.passionworks.org/about-2/
