SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., – The season of giving is here, and the Helper’s Artisans Boutique in San Francisco may be the perfect place to browse. But to many, the shop is a gift in itself.
“The boutique is very special and unique,” Marilyn Harrison, the shop’s marketing director, said. “The fact that it is only local shop featuring products and art created by individuals with developmental disabilities and special needs.”
The boutique is part of The Helper’s Community, a San Francisco-based non-profit dedicated to helping adults with special needs.
The shop, originally opened in Ghirardelli Square decades ago and moved in 2019 to its present location at 1947 Union Street, and has been filled with beautiful handcrafted gifts since.
