The Ambassador Program is a new and special program and we are inviting community members to help us open our doors to inclusion!
Our mission is to open a cafe in Arlington Heights, which will employ adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We want to support the many capable adults living in our community by offering job opportunities and competitive wages. But first we need to raise $500,000 so that we can OPEN Gerry’s Café and offer new jobs! #builditwithus
