Coffee Inclusive employs people with diverse abilities and Autism, working side by side with experienced baristas and servers to provide a warm and welcoming community coffee shop experience, fueled by delicious coffee creations and delectable baked goods. Our coffee shop is a place of employment for people with diverse abilities, where all team members are trained as any other employee would be and paid a fair wage as baristas and servers.
We offer a full line of high quality cold and hot coffees, lattes, espressos, mochas, and cappuccinos along with a selection of the finest baked goods including pastries, muffins, scones, and more.
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!
