The BrickWays Experience

Experiences are the gifts that keep giving! According to researchers at Cornell University, experiential purchases (money spent on doing) tend to provide more enduring happiness than material purchases. 


Our History

Dedicated to change.

In 1975, Mary Jean Brick had a vision. She believed with all her heart that individuals with a disability wanted to find a place in the community to call  “A Home of Their Own.” Mary Jean’s vision, inspired by her special needs son and sister became the Community Living Center.
