Caring Couture Makes Scarves By Employing Adults With Down Syndrome
** To highlight "Small Business Friday" here is a story about a small organization that opens its doors to people of all abilities. **
This is the ultimate story of a mothers love for her child. Boynton Beach, FL mom, Laurie Ruehlman wanted to spend more quality time with her daughter, Payton, who has Down Syndrome.
"I felt Payton was given to me for a reason," her Mom explained. "It was something bigger than just being her Mom."
They decided to buy some paint and silk scarves to try expressing themselves through art. Although Laurie never doubted Payton's talents, she couldn't believe how beautiful her daughter's scarf turned out to be. It wasn't long after, Laurie turned her favorite mother - daughter past time into a thriving business; Caring Couture.
It wasn't long after, Laurie turned her favorite mother - daughter past time into a thriving business; Caring Couture. Laurie saw how much Payton loved painting her scarves and she decided to employ the talents of other special needs artists like her! Laurie gathers her workers together at the Gold Coat Down Syndrome Organization on a part-time basis, recruiting their services whenever merchandise is running low. Not only do the employees at Caring Couture love what they do, it gives them an opportunity for career development and a sense of belonging!
"We are open to hiring all kinds of people," said Laurie. "If you can hold a paintbrush with your hands, your feet or your teeth, you have a job here."
