Books & Beans was designed to utilize people with various disabilities in a learning/working atmosphere.  Hands on training and flexible positions have been instrumental in fostering self-esteem, while allowing individuals to gain work experience with the goal to integrate into other community based jobs.

Books & Beans offers the local community specialty drinks, muffins, bagels, fruit turn overs, free Wi-Fi, and a casual comfortable meeting space for public use.

Profits generated from sales provide additional funding for non state or federal funded programs related to the Center of Hope Foundation, Inc.
