Welcome to Meghan's Place

Meghan’s Place, founded in 2017, is a non-profit, private club serving young adults with disabilities in Hutchinson, Minnesota.

Our goal is to support and advocate for members as they grow into adulthood- empowering them to remain productive, active and integrated within the community.
