Community Link, in partnership with Clinton Manor, created The Red Porch to provide persons with disabilities the opportunity to work and gain skills that would be transferable to other jobs. It gives business owners a deeper understanding of the contributions that persons with disabilities provide the business world.
The Red Porch embraces Community Link's vision, mission, and core values with focuses on three areas: Café. Community. Connect.
Café—The Red Porch offers espresso drinks, coffee, The Republic of Tea, soda products and exceptional food choices.
Community—The Red Porch provides a sense of belonging that connects us to the relationships we develop. The café is a place where people are enabled and empowered to do more for one another.
Connect—The Red Porch creates a space that promotes inclusion and togetherness, as well as a place to catch up with an old friend or make a new one.
