LIVONIA, Mich. – A new Livonia coffee shop will provide an inclusive environment and jobs to many different people, including young adults with disabilities.

Anastasia and Katie’s Coffee Shop is slated to open the first week of December. The cafe will employ people with and without disabilities, and will offer them job training and support, including job coaches, to the employees who need them.

The shop is a Mi Work Matters business. Mi Work Matters is a nonprofit that provides opportunities to people who have developmental disabilities.

The business is getting its start through grants and donations. Donations, grants and proceeds from sales will support the coffee shop when it opens.
