About Community Cup
This “different kind of coffeehouse” is a joint project of the Princeton Presbyterian Church, Chambers Memorial Presbyterian Church and New Avenue Foundation. It will primarily serve as a gathering and safe place for young and old people with disabilities, including autism, Aspergers, etc., and will promote social interaction.
We provide structured activities, plus a meal, followed by the live music. Structured activities include games, skits, telling jokes, karaoke, arts & crafts, dancing, and possibly a simple cooking activity. A meal is included in the gift you give.
We formed this project as a way to help make the lives of people with disabilities more meaningful. We are mostly targeting the local community. There are many people with disabilities in PA who lack waiver funding to provide services for them. 85% of people with disabilities do not have a job. This can mean that these people with disabilities sit at home most of the time. Our idea is to provide something for people with disabilities that they would otherwise not have.
All are invited!
We are open to everyone including those who have a disability – any disability. We need to learn about each other’s differences. We need to respect our differences. You should decide if a parent, guardian or staff is needed, at least for the 1st time until we can get to know the participant. (for now, we will not have an intake/registration/permission form).
The church is wheelchair accessible.
