Spencer’s Place is a project created in partnership with Employed and Overjoyed Foundation to introduce equal employment opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 


Spencer’s Place will enable these adult individuals to earn a paycheck, build relationships, gain a sense of purpose, and show the community the beauty of diversity and inclusion.

From Our Founder


"I was only 20 years old when Spencer was born with Down syndrome. I had to learn to change, reroute my career plans, and grow. Spencer inspired me to become an educator devoted to students with special needs. 28 years later, Spencer and I are ready to embark on another journey through showing the community the beauty of inclusion and diversity."


– Karin York, Spencer’s Place Founder
