A coffee and ice cream shop with a mission!
Inclusion. Jobs. Dignity.


 


At Rise & Nye's, we provide secure, successful jobs which in turn help our employees form meaningful friendships with their peers; live independently; improve their public speaking, develop self-advocacy and communication skills; and feel valued and included by society. We celebrate and honor their special abilities!

It's an Inclusion Revolution!

Integrated employment,
front and center



For too long, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities have been kept in the shadows. Rise & Nye's is about inclusion, acceptance and opportunity for all. Visit us in our awesome flagship shop, right in the middle of downtown Sarasota, Florida.
