Employment for those with cognitive disabilities

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!
