Changing Lives With Every Cup

Coffee Inclusive, located in the former Cooper’s Coop Building in Pittston, is not your ordinary coffee shop. While they brew fresh hot and cold coffees, lattes, expressos, mochas, and cappuccinos, the shop employs people with diverse abilities, including those intellectually or developmentally disabled, and Autism. Working side by side with experienced baristas, the entire staff creates a warm, welcoming environment. In addition to coffee, they feature locally sourced teas and baked goods, as well as fresh-made smoothies and protein bowls. Order to go, or enjoy your beverage and treats at one of the casual seating areas in and around the café.

Bake Inclusive Fundraising Campaign

Bake Inclusive Fundraising Campaign

Since its inception, Coffee Inclusive has exceeded our expectations, fostering an inclusive and empowering environment where individuals of diverse abilities work alongside experienced baristas to create delectable coffees, smoothies, and snacks. The success of Coffee Inclusive has inspired us to embark on an exciting new venture, a bakery, called Bake Inclusive.

Bake Inclusive was designed to build on the achievements of Coffee Inclusive by extending opportunities to even more individuals with diverse abilities. The bakery will help us expand NEPA Inclusive’s transitional employment training program for high school students, preparing them for successful careers beyond graduation. Our mission is to facilitate a seamless transition from high school to gainful employment for these young individuals, whether that be at the bakery or somewhere else. To ensure the grand opening of Bake Inclusive in March 2024, we have set an ambitious fundraising campaign goal of $150,000 in 150 Days. This funding will be allocated towards acquiring the necessary equipment and supplies essential for the bakery’s operations.

We hope you will consider making a donation to help us get Bake Inclusive up and running. Together, we can create a brighter and more inclusive future for all. Thank you!
