The Exceptional Foundation of Charlotte (TEFC)is a comprehensive day program for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities providing facilities and activities to allow exceptional individuals to participate in supervised social and recreational programming with peers. 

After high school, most non-disabled people attend college or gain full time employment.  This continues the full schedule of activities and social interactions essential to a satisfying life.  However, adults with special needs can face many lonely hours with few meaningful activities to fill their lives.  The Exceptional Foundation of Charlotte seeks to enrich the lives of these young people by providing a place to meet regularly with peers and a schedule of daily events such as yoga, arts classes, bowling and community service designed to promote healthy living, support social relationships, explore the arts, improve functional skills and foster community involvement.

The Exceptional Foundation of Charlotte is a North Carolina nonprofit corporation based in Charlotte, North Carolina.
