Collaborative Partners

Collaborative partners fall into five categories. These categories include: Program Expansion, Referring Agencies, State and Local Government Agencies, Service Providers and for-profit organization.

With the intention of creating a replicable model that will expand to other counties we further measure our success as each new greenhouse project is established. Sooner than later we expect to be a statewide and possibly even a nationwide model of vocational services for people with disabilities as well as leaders in resolving the food crisis.

As people become trained in the wholesale, retail, online market in addition to the agribusiness and the public becomes aware of both the problems and solutions present, our expansions are eagerly sought by other organizations. To assist those groups a “Toolbox” (A manual and tools for teaching people how to start an Arthur & Friends program has been developed and successfully licensed to several organizations, including Rutgers University.
