About Dreamers Coffee! The vision, the goal, the mission!

I wrote this for an organization that asked me about Dreamers Coffee. I thought hmmmm....this might be helpful for others, so maybe I need to share this on my blog as well. 

"I am very excited to share our new site, which is morphing more every day, thanks to our incredible web guru! Some know my daughter has Down syndrome. When I looked at the abysmal percentage of individuals with I/DD who are employed, 20%, I just could not sit back and wait for that to change for my daughter. The over all rate of employment for all individuals with a disability is starkly lower than the general population as well. So I started a coffee company. My plan is to hire individuals of all abilities and celebrate inclusion and diversity in the work place! 

I'm beginning this mission by giving out online stores, where I am guiding individuals and families.  I am giving them opportunity to start up and run their own business. All while I offer to help them along the way where I can. We launched our first 8 ONLINE stores, locally, about 2 1/2 weeks ago. We are adding 8 more nation wide in the coming weeks. 

I commissioned an artist last summer to create 2 holiday coffee mugs, and we released the first of the two, last Friday. It has all been very exciting."

All this to say, for those who have not yet seen it, here is my newly improved website! Meet the first 8 Dreamers!"
