Affirmative businesses operated by Citizen Advocates are by and large no different than any other business in the community. They each employ individuals who work hard every day, make a meaningful difference in the community, and offer a sense of pride and a paycheck for a hard day’s work.

What sets them apart is they align with the organization’s mission to support individuals with a developmental disability or those recovering from a mental health or addiction diagnosis. Equally important, the individuals are working side-by-side in a work environment where everyone is treated with the respect and dignity they deserve.

HHOTT House Greenhouses and Garden Center

Founded in 1980, the HHOTT House Greenhouses and Garden Center began as a Vocational Rehabilitation Program for adults with varying disabilities. Due to its overwhelming success, the program opened its doors as a retail business in 1981. In addition to running the business, we continue to run a successful horticulture vocational training program for disabled individuals.

The HHOTT House Greenhouses and Garden Center is the oldest and largest garden center in the Tri-Lakes area and beyond. The center is comprised of three greenhouses and a large outdoor growing area where nursery stock and perennials are produced. One of the greenhouses is open year-round and filled to the brim with a wide selection of houseplants for those who enjoy indoor gardening. The two other greenhouses are open seasonally in the spring and early summer and are used to produce the largest selection of plants in the area. We offer a huge variety, containing hundreds of annuals, perennials, vegetables, and herbs. Many of our plants are grown from seed or are vegetatively propagated in our own greenhouses, giving us the distinction of being local growers.
