About the Cafe
The Friendship Cafe is a unique cafe serving top quality food and at the same time meeting the needs of special needs adults in the South Florida area. The Friendship Cafe is an extension of The Friendship Circle of Fort Lauderdale, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. The Cafe is our training and workplace setting for adults from The Friendship Circle.
The Friendship Cafe focuses on ABILITIES, not disabilities. We are a safe, secure and nurturing environment for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our aim is to encourage and convert unique abilities into meaningful job skills, fostering friendships, and a sense of belonging. Our Friendship employees develop a sense of pride that comes from contributing to their own support.
