What We Do

A nonprofit thrift boutique that employs young adults with special needs (or, as we like to say, special talents). #Zthepotential


ZABS Place closed on March 16th, even before Governor Cooper closed all non-essential businesses because we needed to protect the health of our Special Employees as well as our Customers. (While many of our Talent have health risks, hygiene is also a challenging skill for some of our folks).

We structured ZABS Place so that we would be close to self-sustaining through in-store sales. Now that we’re closed things are getting tight. We still have to pay salaries, utilities, software expenses, and rent on our store location and our two warehouse spaces.

All donations are greatly appreciated.

Interesting Info

ZABS Place is named after Zecharya Avraham Boruch Shporer, a teenage boy who died from Leukemia at the age of 19
In 2014, only 17.1% of people with a disability were employed.
We find talent where no else thought to look. We see ability where all others see disability. We see special talents where others see special needs.
