Thank you for helping us spread more love by donating to Give BIG today!
Your donation helps our mission to empower and enrich the lives of older adults, adults with disabilities, and their caregivers.
As a non-profit café, every purchase goes to supporting that mission. Since 2017, 14 Baristas in training have gained the experience they need to be hired in the community. Although the café has grown from coffee and bakery to lunch and catering, margins are thin and support is needed to continue this important mission.
Your donation extends this bridge to people in your community.
What makes Grounded unique?
Grounded Café was built on the belief that all people have value. That within everyone are possibilities given the right opportunities to succeed. Partnering with Curative Connections and local school districts Grounded was born to break down stereotypes and ageism. To shine a light on the strengths and “abilities” of seniors and persons with disabilities. Build pride and dignity by providing opportunities to uncover and develop abilities.
Grounded Café is about changing the way people see people. We want our guests to feel like they belong to something big! Where people come together, share a meal and a story or two each of them changed forever.
One cup at a time
Grounded Café focuses on abilities through a job skills training program for persons with disabilities. The persons serving you are either older adult mentors or adults with a disability gaining job skills.
Work is a place to belong, socialize, have purpose, and feel valued. At Grounded Café trainees are given the opportunity to work in every part of the café. To learn every task building confidence and discovering their strengths empowering them to experience the pride and dignity of participating in the community. It’s been a resounding success more than half of the trainees finding jobs in the community.
Your purchases make this possible
Can one cup of coffee make a difference – You bet!
