New Florida Cafe in partnership with special needs organizations

Noah’s Agape Café is a new non-profit organization providing a safe and fun work environment for employees with intellectual differences.

Owner Beckie Schwartz says the idea was to give those with intellectual differences, like her son Noah, a safe and fun place to work.

“We just wanted something good to do in the community. There are about 80 percent of children with disabilities who don’t have jobs and we want them to have meaningful jobs,” Schwartz said.

Parents of employees like Michelle Tetschner say it’s a great addition to the community.

“When people can come in and see them working and being valued for their talents and strengths, it makes a big difference to them. Raymond [Tetschner’s son] always wanted to just, belong and have a satisfying job, and live independently and this cafe is a great way for him to start those skills,” Tetschner said.

“We just want to do whatever we can for our community, whether it’s helping someone who needs a wheelchair or a job or just coming to pray for whatever you need. needed, we just wanted to be the hands and feet of Jesus,” Schwartz said.

The grand opening of Noah’s Agape Cafe will take place on September 10 at 9 a.m.
