Thank you, Marty Currie and Honest Town Postal and Print, for a tremendous job on all the printing I needed for my invention, My Wardrobe Genius — not only for the high-quality, fairly-priced product, but for all that you did to make this easy. I have sought quotes from and worked with other printers, but Marty and Honest Town sets the bar when it comes to prompt and often pro-active communication with customers. Marty always responded to my emails and phone calls promptly, and I never had to try to chase down an answer from him. My Wardrobe Genius has several different types of printing needs, and Marty, in collaboration with Mark Carron, found the perfect fit for my needs. Additionally, I look forward to the day when Honest Town delivers the finished printing to the Center of Hope’s Noress Corporation for packaging and fulfillment. One stop. No worries. And it will all be done well by a tremendous organization.

Developmental Services- DDS). Intended for children on the autism
spectrum (ASD) aged birth to 8 years old who also require intensive services in
the home and community. Supports include applied behavior analysis, floor-time
and communications skills development. There are eligibility guidelines.
By enrolling you have the opportunity to obtain these services once funding is
available. Also the waiting list helps the legislature understand that
more funding is needed. Those that applied in last year’s open enrollment
do need to apply again if services were not received. Go

applications can’t be submitted until November 7.
