The Power of Ideas: Deborah Flaschen
(Boston Magazine)

March, 2015

Boston magazine's monthly feature "The Power of Ideas" recognizes the difference a good idea can make. The March 2015 feature, written by S.I. Rosenbaum, takes a look at Deborah Flaschen, 3LPlace's founder and president.

Rosenbaum writes: "Flaschen decided to create an environment where developmentally disabled adults could continue to learn without being segregated from their peers, and where they could establish jobs and homes while still having access to support and resources. 'I began to think about how to design a community to support people over a life span,' she says. In November, she opened 3LPlace Life College, a state-approved, residential, post–high school program housed in a renovated multifamily house outside of Davis Square."
