Bloom Café is a social enterprise of Paraquad, The Disability Experts, designed to help people with disabilities prepare for employment. The program has three stages:

Training Program: Students complete a 12-week, skills-based curriculum where they study topics, such as food handling and preparation, and learn soft skills, such as customer service and workplace etiquette.
Paid Internship: Students progress to a short-term paid internship at Bloom Café and other restaurants to build skills and experience.
Job Placement: When interns are job-ready, Paraquad assists them in finding and maintaining jobs in the community.

At Bloom Café, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to live and work independently.
