The Exceptional Foundation of West Tennessee

Enriching the lives of those with intellectual disabilities by meeting their social, recreational, and continued educational needs.

A Special Place For Those With Special Needs

It’s not easy being exceptional. You stand out…or you don’t. You’re left out…or you’re kept in. Yet, you have social needs just like everyone else. That’s why The Exceptional Foundation of West Tennessee was founded. We are a non-profit organization providing social, recreational, and continued educational needs for individuals with intellectual disabilities. We offer holistic programming in a safe, welcoming community for individuals with a variety of disabilities.

Who We Serve

EFWT is an inclusive community for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, Developmental Delay, Cerebral Palsy, Williams Syndrome, Prader-Willi, Rubenstein Taybi, Schprinten Syndrome, and more.

Join us! Together, we can do so much more!
