The Spectrum Network has history of more than 40 years in assisting those with barriers to work and life realize successful integration into the community as productive participants. Our mission is accomplished through training programs geared to the individual's specific needs from life skills, which enable them to live in their own homes and be independent, to developing work skills which allow them to be gainfully employed and working along side fellow community members and become less reliant on assistance dollars or social programs. Our services are provided to a wide range of community members from high school students to those over 100!
Headquartered in Decorah, we travel widely to serve over 120 clients from 10 counties in northeast Iowa. We also own and operate Spectrum Thrift Store. This provides just one of many job skills training opportunities available to our clients. Clients sort donations, categorize & hang clothing, refurbish donated items, and stock shelves to name a few of the activities.
Donations are welcome and help to support our mission of eliminating barriers so that all individuals may live and work in our communities. Please drop off your donations at The Spectrum Network in Decorah or at the Spectrum Thrift Store. Please be sure to donate only those items we can refurbish and resell as the disposal of large appliances, TV's, etc. incur costs to us to properly dispose of.
