Company Description
Ada's Cafe is a Palo Alto-based, 501c3, non-profit that provides training and jobs for both non-disabled and adults with disabilities in its cafe and catering businesses. Ada's is a true social enterprise with a mission to improve the lives of its disabled associates while showcasing their abilities to the general public in a business committed to providing the highest quality food, drinks and service.

The social mission of Ada's is two-fold: (i) to hire and train all of its employees, including its adults with disabilities, to work in its food-service businesses and (ii) to engage teens and young adults through work and involvement with Ada's disabled employees. The community benefits of empowering and employing adults with developmental disabilities - a population that is most one of the most marginalized in our society and within which unemployment is estimated at nearly 80% are clear, innumerable and easy to document with social science statistics. The self-esteem benefits that come from having a job, the satisfaction that comes from making a contribution and by reducing the burden on an already overwhelmed and under-funded social welfare system are just a few of the many community benefits provided by Ada's. In addition, Ada's believes that youth engaged in meaningful work will feel more connected to and invested in their communities. In all of its ventures, Ada's Cafe brings diverse groups of people together in a warm and welcoming environment with a mission of creating good food and community.
