News Flash – Helpers Artisans Boutique moved to our new location 1947 Union Street!
New location, new approach
We encourage all our friends and supporters to help us spread the word about our new retail location at 1947 Union Street, in San Francisco. This busy retail district offers lots of fun things to do. Grab a friend and make a morning or afternoon of it. Visit us soon, we have wonderful treasures to share!
Our store employees are individuals with developmental disabilities preparing for retail careers. Union Street offers our trainees a more vibrant shopping spot to learn customer service and retail operations, including the use of Square to process point of sale transactions. Helpers partners with Pomeroy Recreation and Rehabilitation Center and the ARC of San Francisco to deliver the workforce development and employment program.
The Boutique is also hosting Artist in Residence days, in partnership with the ARC and Pomeroy Center. This provides an opportunity to see artists sharing their creative process.
You will find handcrafted items created by talented individuals with developmental disabilities from throughout the greater Bay Area. In fact, all items featured at our Helpers Store are either made by, designed by or produced by individuals with development disabilities. When visiting the store, be sure to read the featured bios of these talented artists.
