Good Cause Gifts

Good Cause Gifts, a model for social enterprise, was founded in 2009 by a dedicated group of parents from Berlin, CT who were seeking ways for their family members with a disability to contribute to their community. Today, Good Cause Gifts employs over 20 individuals with disabilities as sales associates across two attractive gift shop locations.

The Kitchen at Futures Inc.

In the Kitchen at Futures, we believe that learning to craft a beautiful treat requires the same skills needed to craft a rewarding life – a positive attitude, a plan, attention to detail. We hope to increase independent living skills and employment through training in food preparation, safe food handling and food service skills for the individuals we support.
