• CUP - Coffee Uniting People - Creating Inclusive Opportunities

Our Mission

CUP will provide secure and successful jobs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in an inclusive workplace.  We will open our first non-profit coffee house in South Tampa in the fall of 2022.  CUP is about inclusion, acceptance and opportunity for people of all abilities.

Our coffee is bold. So is our mission.

Our Story

Our involvement with Challenger Baseball (baseball that includes children with disabilities) opened our eyes to the significant need for inclusion at all ages and into adulthood.  Eighty percent of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are unemployed.  We are determined to change this…one CUP at a time.
