Who We Are
There is a determination, desperation and passion woven deeply into each family that has an adult living with a disability. There are many great organizations that provide support. We exist to serve the whole person, the entire family, and their full support system.
What We Offer
We allow our students to ease into the workforce, instead of being dropped in the “deep end” immediately. This allows students to begin to understand how they fit into the world of commerce and business.
Working Side by Side
On the Avenue supports & works daily with companies in Middle Tennessee that support their mission of helping people live life more abundantly, build community & gain confidence. While not a job placement service, On the Avenue is a community where people with learning and intellectual disabilities can enter adulthood and network at their own pace. The journey is the destination On the Avenue. A more abundant life begins with the dedication of strengthening what each of us has, every day. We love partnering, side by side, with our partner companies.
