Justin from FSE

Flutie Spectrum Enterprises Hires First Employee!

   
 

“I have reflected since Justin was first hired by FSE and realized I had never dared to dream Justin would ever be employed. The day we printed out the W-4 form, I actually began to cry. I still can’t believe it.”
- Allison, Justin's Mom

The Flutie Foundation’s recently launched Flutie Spectrum Enterprises (FSE) has hired its first employee who has been hard at work for the past two months. FSE will be aiming to fulfill the Flutie Foundation's mission of helping adults with autism grow toward independence by creating micro-businesses to employ this very population. The first enterprise is FSE Office Solutions, offering shredding, mailing, and assembly services for local businesses. Justin has been packaging t-shirts; shredding files; and stuffing, sealing, and stamping envelopes. We believe that every adult deserves the dignity of a job opportunity, and we seek to hire adults from across the entire autism spectrum. As we evolve, we will launch new businesses based around the skills and interests of our employees. Simultaneously providing quality, affordable services to our customers and cultivating a work environment that will ensure that our employees succeed, Flutie Spectrum Enterprises is a win-win for everyone involved.
