Handi-Crafters runs one of the largest employment and disability focused support service programs in Southeast Pennsylvania. Each year we help over 400 individuals to access rewarding employment opportunities in the community and in our Skill Development Center. We achieve our goals through partnerships with great employers and the acquisition of work contracts with businesses who choose socially responsible outsourcing to meet their production, assembly, kitting and packaging needs. We offer a continuum of support programs which includes housing solutions and retirement options. In operation since 1961, Handi-Crafters is a trusted resource serving the needs of those who are differently-abled in Chester and surrounding Counties.
We offer full-service packaging (including custom packaging solutions), repackaging and rework, kitting, and assembly services through our Skill Development Center. Equipped to handle both large and small projects, Handi-Crafters is the answer to outsourcing. We are deadline and quality driven. We are at your service, providing contract packaging, kitting, repackaging, rework, assembly service and custom solutions! LEARN MORE.

In 1961, Handi-Crafters was founded in Downingtown, Pennsylvania by a group of parents who were seeking a direction in life after high school for their differently-abled children. The committee was forward thinking and concentrated on establishing the concept around meaningful work and employment, a crucial void in the lives of their children given they would leave school without any work-related skills and seemed destined to be cut off from the opportunity of becoming employed. Thus, the vision of a supported workshop program was opened and serving Chester County.
A vision that began in 1961 remains a mission today. Our history, facility and our leadership. LEARN MORE.
