We need your help so we can avoid the PITfalls our first year in business

We are so grateful to our community for supporting our Builditwithus Campaign in our first two years as a new nonprofit organization to help us raise the start up building costs needed to Open Gerry's Cafe! We are close to signing a lease for our space. We continue to raise funds to afford our first year of operations.

Our Mission is to operate a community destination cafe, offering craft food and beverage, prepared and served by employees, twenty-two and older, with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Our cafe will be a place of joy for all employees and patrons.

Our vision along with the support of our community is becoming reality!

We will serve amazing coffee offerings, fresh baked pastries, cafe style breakfast & lunch and add catering with delivery service. We want to support the many capable adults living in our community by offering job opportunities and competitive wages.

Let's create a workplace where all people with different abilities are included and celebrated!

Gerry's Cafe will provide exceptional food, drink, joy and community through the extraordinary acceptance of everyone.
