Founder and Inspiration:
Daniel Brake d'Avignon

Mr d'Avignon chose teaching as a second career, excited by the unfulfilled potential our children hold for changing the world.  

Mr. d'Avignon, himself, designed the first handicapped van transport in 1972 and launched what today we take for granted.  He was moved by the isolation and depression then experienced by those then known as 'shut-ins.'  

His Real Client Projects carried out over the last nearly two decades have resulted in similar advances for serving the public and building new businesses.
