Compassion Café and #ArcOcean

The Compassion Café on Long Beach Island is providing employment opportunities to adults with disabilities to help gain work experience and earn a paycheck. 

Some participants from The Arc, Ocean County Chapter are now employed at the Compassion Café thanks to their job training and support from the Journeys and Discovery vocational day program. 

This is groundbreaking for the disability employment movement and has been covered by the local news stations on how important this unique opportunity is for adults with disabilities.
