Roses for Autism; is a 501(c)(3) non-profit social enterprise whose mission is to foster meaningful employment for individuals with Autism. At our Guilford, CT location, we are continuing a three generation legacy at the Pinchbeck farm. We grow and sell a variety of fresh cut flowers including roses, lilies, and Gerbera daisies within a dynamic business that employs individuals living with Autism and provides career training and mentorship to transition age students.
Our Pinchbeck roses are locally renowned for being fresh-cut and full fragrant, and for unfolding in exquisite blooms over the course of two weeks upon delivery. They have been a favorite among such distinguished customers as Joan Crawford and Barbara Bush, and continue to create a following among new and returning customers on a daily basis. Since 2009, we have helped nearly one hundred individuals gain employability skills through Ability Beyond Transition Services.
We invite you to learn more about Roses For Autism, and share our story because together we can make a real impact! Autism Spectrum Differences are diagnosed in 1 in 68 children in the U.S. Once these individuals reach adulthood, the unemployment and underemployment rate is nearly 88%. Proceeds from our flower sales fund scholarships and programs for career training.
* At times of peak demand, we source fresh flowers from trusted business partners so that we may fulfill our mission.
