MCDS has a great staff ready to provide support services to help make a difference in the lives of those they serve. Sometimes that support means listening to new ideas and finding a way to make them happen. Through the brilliant idea and recommendation of James and Eric, MCDS (and a grant from WalMart) transformed an area into a Retro Lounge where clients can hang out and relax with tech gadgets. When not busy in production or chillin in the Retro Lounge, clients will now have another unique opportunity with the new for MCDS greenhouse.
