Who We Serve?


Growing Roots will initially serve teenagers and adults with developmental and cognitive challenges living in West Michigan and surrounding areas.  Generally, these are people with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, mental illness and cognitive impairments.


As Growing Roots develops it will aim to serve a multi-generational population of individuals facing developmental and cognitive challenges through its outreach and day programming.  This will include children, senior citizens and all ages in between.


Eventually, Growing Roots will aim to become a place of education and retreat for all individuals needing to reconnect with nature, regardless of age or disability.
