“I am involved in Hugs Cafe for a number of reasons, but it all started in my first years of college where I majored in special education.  I worked with special needs children for less than a year when a different path took me away.
40 years later I met Ruth Thompson and her passion for starting Hugs Cafe was infectious.
Being a part of Hugs has broadened my learning curve and enhanced my personal mission – no matter a person’s abilities, everyone has something to offer this world.  After working with some of our teammates I’ve been awe struck at their humor, concentration, and love of learning a task.  They love cooking and prep work, and concentrate on a task more than many of us do.
The best thing is Hugs Cafe will employ special needs adults, giving them the opportunity to make a contribution to society.
And, through Hugs Cafe we are making an impact on the greater community and truly living the concept of ‘it takes a village.'”
