Why We Started This Company
When our son was nearing graduation from high school we started looking for ways that he could become self-sufficient. There were little or no opportunities for him so we looked at business that could be used to offer student with disabilities some hope. We were startled by the 97% unemployment rate of people with disabilities. We feel that we can use our coffee company to partner with other agencies and organization to address this issue. We believe that are company will fill the gap between high schoo
