About Galit

"Power Cafe" will be a coffee shop to be staffed and run entirely by people with physical and/or developmental disabilities. There are various examples, such as http://timsplaceabq.com/ and http://destinationdesserts.org/, of similar endeavors. I am very excited to create a venue which will not only create real opportunities for people with disabilities, but do so in a context where they will interact in a powerful, autonomous way with the mainstream community. I see this as building bridges and forming personal connections to overcome prejudice and stereotypes.

I am looking for a partner who is knowledgeable about the process of actually starting a business; necessary filings; legal and tax implications, etc; who would be inspired to be a part of this project.
