Moxi Junction started with 3 moms, 6 Special Needs Adults and and one College Student.  
The Moms wanted a place for their Special Needs Adult children to have a place to work, and they wanted to make Moxi Junction a "Gathering place" for everyone.  


                        Moxi  stands for "Mothers of eXceptional Individuals" 


I recently visited Moxi Junction and loved the bright colors both inside and outside.

The reason for MOXI Junction: Chris, Laren and Kara on opening day
 ready to work!
 To the left of the entrance, against large picture windows is a counter with bar stools that span the wall with a strip of electrical outlets running under the counter for customers computers and electronic devices. 
To the right of the main door, an aisle is lined with two-person tables. 
Opposite the tables stands a large cubbyhole structure with decorative art objects inside. 





There are plenty of seating options outside also!
