What is a tangram?

a Chinese geometric puzzle consisting of a square cut into seven pieces that can be rearranged to make various other shapes

The seven pieces of the tangram puzzle can be rearranged to form over 10,000 different shapes. This is symbolic of our belief that there are unlimited possibilities for people with disabilities. 

The Tangram story:

Tangram was established in 1985 in Hancock County, Indiana by families of individuals with disabilities who wanted better options for independent living for their loved ones. Since that time, Tangram has grown to serve individuals with disabilities and their families throughout Central Indiana, and offers a wide range of individualized services to meet the unique needs of the people we serve.
