Organization Information

Mission Statement

Little Red Hen is a 501(c)(3)non-profit organization serving children and adults with developmental disabilities. Our six Chico retail locations provide employment that is not subminimal wage. Our retail and horticulture departments employ 175 developmentally disabled adults, supported through the sales of items. 100% of our sales/donations benefit quality programs for children and adults with developmental disabilities like Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, and other cognitive disabilities.

Description

We believe that any adult with developmental disabilities (and their caretakers) are in the best position to describe their own capabilities and needs, to speak or communicate for themselves, and to make their own decisions. By recognizing abilities instead of focusing on inabilities, Little Red Hen provides quality in all things we offer to the community. We do not pay below minimum wage because we believe that it helps develop better self-esteem and is crucial in fighting poverty in the developmentally disabled community.
ALL PEOPLE NEED TO ENJOY THEIR CHOSEN OCCUPATIONS and be allowed to make significant contributions to their communities. Our Community-Supported Employment emphasizes service, learning, and choice as the directing force behind each employee’s Individual Service Plan (ISP). Informed choices are based upon individual needs, desires, circumstances, and opportunities.
