37. Stirring In Employment Training + Community Goodness with a Coffee Shop (Interview with DeeDee Ungetheim and Terri Ramsey from A Special Blend)
In today's episode, I sit with members from A Special Blend a non-profit business and coffee shop located in Greensboro, NC. DeeDee Ungetheim (President of the Board) and Terri Ramsey (Board Member + Volunteer Coordinator) join us as they share about the inception of the idea, to raising over $300,000 in their local community, to where they are today in training employees with disabilities for employment. A Special Blend's mission is to employ adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in a setting that interacts with the community. They aim to improve the quality of their lives and to broaden the public's perception of people with disabilities.In this episode, we get into A Special Blend's core messaging of being a Community in a Cup and how they intentionally reflect this on a day-to-day basis from starting as a coffee shop (with dang good coffee!), to empowering both individuals with and without disabilities to get involved, and so much more.As of this recording, A Special Blend is turning 1 year old; so if you live nearby in Greensboro you should stop by their events this month, say hi, and celebrate them, their employees, and community.Resources & References Mentioned:Website: aspecialblend.orgEmail: asbinfo@aspecialblend.orgEvents: @aspecialblendcoffeeFacebook: A Special BlendAbout Autism Grown Up:AGU website: Podcast home: Resource Center + Community: community.autismgrownup.comSupport the show
