Self-Sufficiency through Entrepreneurship.

Bee’s Knees is a small club of young adults interested in art.  The group is designed to promote independence and build new skills.  The group meets weekly to work together on new art pieces.  Their art has been displayed at our state capital and has been commissioned for offices.  Bee’s Knees participates in art exhibits and has been featured at art galleries.


Bee’s Knees is cosponsored by and Youth & Family Services, Inc.

Bee’s Knees promotes self-sufficiency for young adults with developmental disabilities through entrepreneurship.

Bee’s Knees functions as a small business. The entrepreneurs of Bee’s Knees create handmade functional products and original one-of-a-kind masterpieces and sell them at various exhibits and events. The money they raise keeps their program going and supports them having a group leader, field trips, and other opportunities for the members.
