Enhancing the Richmond Community for Young Adults with Special Needs

Nest Academy is filling a much needed void in the special needs community for adults with complex needs. While there are many programs that support adults with disabilities that are higher functioning, there are little to no programs for those with complex disabilities due to physical and cognitive impairments. Nest students typically require one-on-one assistance for every aspect of daily living and are often medically fragile.

What We Do

Upcycled Tote Program

Cookies are to Girl Scouts as Totes are to Nest.  Nest has developed this Upcycling tote program to:

  • Engage students in meaningful activities such as collecting, tagging and selling totes

  • Engage with volunteers in RVA to support the conversion of these feedbags

  • Offset costs of Nest Programs

 

Most tote bags can be purchased for just $15.​
