Did you know over 80% of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are unemployed.

Yup, you read that right.

There's more! Over 60% of disabled people are facing chronic loneliness and mental health conditions from social isolation. 

So we decided to offer both! Common Grounds not only employs different abilities, but creates social experiences and activities for every person to feel viewed, valued, accepted, and most importantly, included. 


who we are.

about common grounds coffee co.

Common Grounds Coffee Co. is a locally-owned coffee business in Yakima, WA. We support adults with disABILITIES through employment, community events, recreational activities, real-life learning experiences, and overall, encourage the population we serve to live independent lives. We find the common ground within diverse populations, providing equal opportunities for every ability!

filling the community cup.

our goals.

Common Grounds is not your everyday coffee shop. We serve the needs and lives of those with disabilities, one cup of coffee at a time. We first advocate for disability employment. Our shop is employed primarily by disabled individuals and our mission is to remove obstacles for disabled workers and offer financial support so that they have the chance to live more independently. This population deserves every opportunity to be full members of their community where they can live, learn, work, and play through all stages of life.

On top of that, Common Grounds offers unique experiences such as paint nights, yoga series, 5k races, social hours, and other inclusive activities that support social isolation. We prioritize inclusion, in hopes that creating more inclusive experiences will help fight the isolation that individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities face. 

Although Common Grounds prioritizes making a difference for the disabled population, we also hope to inspire the people around us. We want to give the community a chance to better understand the needs and lives of those with disabilities.
