Employment for those with cognitive disabilities

$3,350 of $60,000 goal

Raised by 48 people in 3 months
Meet Spencer,  a 28 year old, well adjusted, hilarious, productive contributor in our community with Down Syndrome. He is blessed with many opportunities and attends an amazing program daily. 
While Spencer has benefits that provide skill development and training, many of my adult students do not qualify for these services. In fact, approximately 80% of our population with disabilities are unemployed. Without services or job skills, many are home alone, lonely, unfulfilled, and longing for purpose. 
Spencer's Place will provide job coaches, specific instruction and complete joy! Our upcoming coffee shop and bistro will employ individuals with cognitive and intellectual disabilities. We will serve our community with an uplifting environment, great coffee and cuisine! 
WE NEED YOU!!!
Please consider helping us get off the ground. We have secured a great location and hired a contractor for renovations. Our needs are the build-out, equipment, product, furniture, staff and merchandise. We appreciate any gift large or small. Prayer and encouragement is always welcome! Thank you from Spencer and team!

Greetings from Team Spencer! I regret that I do not have a current update on the building plans. We are still waiting for the city to give us the green light on construction. I have had several productive meetings with personnel at Marley Park and in the community. We have shared ideas and dreams!
Our non-profit foundation is up and running! I will send out information for our Employed and Overjoyed Foundation soon. We are praying that this will help us fund the remainder of the expenses. Thank you for your donations and encouragement.
