A new business in downtown Mansfield is helping out local youths while allowing people to shred documents and protect their privacy.
Mansfield Shredding Service, located at 174 N. Main St., is non-profit and all green. It has been designed to fill a void: employment for some of Mansfield’s mentally challenged teenagers.
The operation is the brainchild of Mansfield resident Kathleen Harney, whose 18-year-old son, Patrick, is autistic.
The mentally challenged kids want to be productive members of the community, she said.
“They all want to work. Otherwise, they sit at home watching TV, looking at the walls,” she said. “For the past two years, I’ve been trying to find Patrick a job, but there are no places that will hire him. I even volunteered to pay for an assistant” but it was still no use.
The situation prompted Kathleen to found a non-profit umbrella corporation, Mansfield Innovative and Development Services, Inc. (MIDS), the mission of which is to start up small businesses and provide job skills training, business education, and employment to mentally challenged students from Mansfield High School.
