About St. Coletta of Greater Washington
Coletta Collections is run by St. Coletta of Greater Washington, a nonsectarian, nonprofit organization in the Washington, DC area that’s mission is to empower children and adults with intellectual and multiple disabilities to discover their full potential. All of the items on this site are handmade in the USA by participants in one of our programs.
Coletta Collections also has retail stores that offer a variety of crafts such as fused glass tableware, jewelry and hand woven and hand-dyed scarves and accessories made by our participants. In addition to being a point of pride to be able to sell what they make, the shops offer our participants the opportunity to learn retail skills and have daily community integration.
At St. Coletta we believe in the right of each individual to live as full and independent a life as possible. We respect the dignity of all persons entrusted to our care and our goal is to serve them in an atmosphere that encourages their talents, celebrates their successes and builds their self esteem.Your purchase helps continue to see possibilities beyond disabilities.
