"Everyone needs the opportunity to be employed!”
Our Bakers Coffee is roasted by special people! All are welcome regardless of your differences. We are building community through good wholesome treats and by helping each of us feel a valued part of the community.
We are partnering with Furnace Hills Coffee a coffee roaster in Westminster MD. Their motto is “Exceptional coffee roasted by special people”. Their mission and that of New Avenue Foundation is the same when it comes to employing people with disabilities. 75-85% of people with disabilities are either unemployed or under-employed. We are trying to make a difference.
Check out the link below to make your order of delicious coffee and help us with our mission.

We all have dreams in how we see ourselves walk through life. Most of us dream of a better world, one in which we take care of Mother Earth. This is what drives us who are in this transition town movement, helping one another, paying it forward, doing unto others …
My dream is simple – live for another 50 years so that I can take care of my daughter who has autism. If you don’t have a child with a disability then you really can’t understand what we need to do. Although, this group, better than others, knows what needs to be done to help ensure future generations will have an earth to live on. We dream this, too. But our reasons hit home in a different way. Mostly, we have no one to rely upon to take on the responsibility of caring for our child. That’s why we do what we do.
