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!
