Spectrum Has Served the Area Since 1974

The organization that is now the Spectrum Network began on September 16, 1974, when an activity center opened its doors to 13 clients in the basement of Grace Episcopal Church in Decorah. The organization has grown and transformed, changing its name first to Spectrum Industries, Inc. in 1986 and has been doing business as The Spectrum Network since 2006. The Spectrum Network now employs 35 individuals who help over 100 clients from ten Iowa counties.

Spectrum Continues to add Programs and Services

Over the years, the Spectrum organization has expanded our services to better serve the needs of the people we work with. The added services have included Supported Community Living Programs, Prevocational Training programs, Community Based Employment Services, a thrift store, a Day Habilitation program, services for transitioning high school students with special needs and services for people with intellectual disabilities.

Throughout the years, The Spectrum Network has remained focused on helping people achieve new competencies so that they can thrive in the community. We look forward to continued change and growth as we continue to find new ways to serve our clients and help men and women find meaningful work to succeed in their daily lives and gain their independence.

Spectrum Industries, Inc. is a 501c nonprofit organization.
