This month’s #WATWB highlights the hiring inclusivity shown by three U.S. business owners:
Stephanie and Mark Cartier of the No Limits Cafe in Middletown, NJ. The cafe’s mission is to “empower adults with intellectual disabilities by providing jobs and job training to help them lead fulfilling lives within the community and to increase awareness of their potential.”
Tom Landis of Howdy Homemade Ice Cream in Dallas, TX. From their website: “Howdy Homemade is on a relentless pursuit to provide employment for individuals with special needs. We’re all about two things: amazing ice cream and even better people. We hope to change the way the world looks at everyone.”
Check out their websites for more information and be sure to watch the ABC News video HERE.
If ever a restaurant such as the No Limits Cafe existed in Appleton, I would be there in a heartbeat. These restaurants are a reflection of business owners who value those with disabilities, people who need a sense of accomplishment and self-worth and are loved. Bravo to the Cartier’s and Mr. Landis!
