OPENING SEPTEMBER 2023
Sleepy Coffee, Too, Inc.’s mission as a non-profit business is to provide on the job industry level training and employment for people with disabilities in an inclusive, self-sustaining cafe workplace.
We want to improve the lives of people with disabilities by reducing the high unemployment rate of people within that community.
We want to create an inclusive space where young people can feel respected, valued and have fun at work and through our “Sleepy Coffee, Too After Hours” social/ recreation program.
We want to create a warm, inclusive gathering place within the greater community to showcase to the world the abilities of these amazing individuals.
We want to help those individuals who can, to move on to competitive employment within our community with our support.
“Sleepy Coffee, Too’s mission is to provide meaningful training and employment for people with disabilities in an inclusive cafe workplace.”
We are a nonprofit 501c3 business.
Students who graduate high school from special education programs have limited opportunities for meaningful training or employment. The unemployment rate for them is at about 80%. This issue causes them to experience regression, depression, isolation and to be dependent on others.
A solution to this problem is to create an inclusive workplace in the community that provides both job training and inclusive employment which enables these young people to feel respected and valued. Our concept is a coffee shop/bakery.
