Square Seven Coffee House

Food & Drink

Stopping by our coffee house helps us employ and train people with disabilities as they find their place in the community.

Mission

To bring about a vibrant community where people lead fulfilling lives and make meaningful contributions.

Our Social Impact

We help the local food economy. Almost all of our food and beverages are sourced locally.

We help bring about a vibrant community by creating public community space, by hosting musicians 2-4 times a month, and by connecting businesses around Fairfield County with employees.

We employ and train interns who have developmental disabilities for ten week periods to help develop skills to enable them to be employed in the community. Since 2014, twenty five (25) people have participated in the internship opportunity. 100% have developed new skills. 80% of interns are either employed in the community or actively seeking employment once they complete the internship. Additionally, 25% of Art & Clay’s permanent workforce is comprised of people with disabilities. Art & Clay on Main helps to show that a diverse workforce increases morale. Teams that include people with disabilities have higher productivity, longevity and lower absenteeism and turnover.
