Mission Moment

Coming Soon: Neurodiversity Library

In an effort to foster further compassion and understanding within our community, we are creating a Neurodiversity Library in the coffee shop. Our Neurodiversity Library will begin with a curated children’s collection of stories about characters across the spectrum of diversity. Guests may read, learn and start conversations around these important topics. We will expand our collection to middle grade and young adult books this spring, and add an adult collection over the summer.

Thank you to all of our generous donors for helping us purchase so many books! If you would like to donate a book to the Neurodiversity Library, please find our Amazon wish list here.

Please add April 3rd to your calendar and join us for the official launch of the Neurodiversity Library.

The event was co-organized by The Nest and Anchor & Compass shops in downtown Deep River. Folks came to visit the shops and collected paper hearts from each business to create a wreath of hearts. All participating businesses donated a portion of their sales to support our first responders who keep us all safe!

Through this community effort, $2,200 was raised to support Deep River’s volunteer first responders! Murray Newton, our event Heart Mascot, was even on hand to help spread the love! Our thanks to all who made the day wonderful with your warm hearts and generous spirit!

The Nest is going green for St. Patrick’s Day

Our social gatherings are expanding! From Anime and Creator’s Corner, to Scavenger hunts and Robotics, we are creating more opportunities for our young adults to engage, learn and expand their knowledge.
