Breaking down stereotypes of “disability” and “seniors”.
Grounded Café is a non-profit program of ADRC of Brown County. It is designed to break down stereotypes and ageism, forming new paradigms and awareness of the strengths and “abilities” of seniors and persons with disabilities. We want our guests to feel like they belong to something big! To celebrate and be part of the many, many small things staff do every day that make big, big changes in people’s lives. Grounded Café tackles high unemployment rates for persons with disabilities through job training skills and “front door” experiences.

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.
We are all 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.
