Power Cafe!

Remember back in June when Angela turned 18? Do you know what comes with turning 18? Me panicking about Angela getting a job. I have a few friends in the DS community who have solved the problem not only for their own child, but they have opened businesses to employ others who have disabilities as well.

My friend Galit is a long-time reader here at The Garden. She lives in the Boston area and has started the MOST awesome project!!!

The Power Cafe is a coffee shop, but not just any coffee shop! The Power cafe will be staffed entirely by people with physical and/or developmental disabilities! Galit has started an Indiegogo campaign. Please go have a look and, if you're able, help support this venue that will be so beneficial to the disability community of Boston!

Thank you so much for posting this. I'm the stepmother of a young woman (not so young -- 27!) with Down syndrome. She currently goes to a sheltered workshop, but my husband, her mother and I have been searching for a job for her. This is a great idea and I'll get in touch with your friend.
