Co-founders Kelly Maffei, Amy Stern and Kris Burbank formed FUTURES-CT, Inc. in 2017. The nonprofit does business as Woofgang & Co. FUTURES stands for "Families United Towards Unlimited Real Employment Solutions." The co-founders envisioned a business that would provide meaningful vocational training in their community for transitioned young adults with disabilities and increases community awareness of the need for local employment options among these individuals. Woofgang & Co. does just that and more.
Kelly, Amy and Kris have a combined total of nearly 65 years working with young adults with disabilities, juggling multiple roles as working mothers, and serving as active community residents. Together, they manage the operations of Woofgang & Co. and also serve on the organization's Board of Directors.
