The Help Group Opens Silverlining - A Resale Boutique Offering Students With Special Needs Real-Life Work Experience.

The Help Group is proud to announce the March 9 opening of Silver-lining resale boutique adjacent to its Culver City Campus.

This unique enterprise offers new and gently used fashionable and designer clothing, shoes, and accessories for women, men and children while serving as an innovative vocational training center for students with social and communication disabilities, including autism and other related disorders. This invaluable work experience is designed to enable students to increase their level of independence and self confidence and develop the life skills tools they need to secure employment.

"This is one of the many new initiatives being launched at The Help Group that seeks to broaden the range of opportunities for young people with special needs. This venture has the added beauty of benefiting students, those who donate to the store and our community a silver lining for all," said Dr. Susan Berman, Chief Operating Officer of The Help Group.

Silverlining is appreciative of the generous donations from American Rag, Disney/ABC Television Group, Ed Hardy Shoes and Pumpkin-heads as well as from many individuals in the community.

Silverlining is located at 12095 Washington Blvd. in Culver City. For more information and how to make donations, please call 310-741-1483 or email silverlining@thehelpgroup.org.
