The Aaron Zenus Foundation is pleased to announce the opening of our new business venture we call “Sweet Inspirations”. Sweet Inspirations is a non-profit, retail candy and specialty gift shop that will provide vocational and employment opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Our “Grand Opening” will be held on Saturday, October 15, 2022 at 10:00AM in the store located at 19 Central Street, in Milford, MA.
The Aaron Zenus Foundation is a 501 (C) 3 charitable organization that encourages and supports individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their families, as they seek to achieve independence, community integration, social growth, and an enhanced quality of life.
Our strategy for supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities includes increasing opportunities for creating a healthier lifestyle, enhancement of social networking and social programs, seeking employment opportunities, and to inspire participation in sports, recreation, and the arts.
Sweet Inspirations will provide meaningful paid employment for individuals within our communities with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The daily operational tasks at the store will be completed by our employees, with over site provided by the Foundation.
Sweet Inspirations addresses a tremendous employment need for those adults with disabilities that are currently unemployed, and an employment opportunity for students entering the work force when transitioning to adult services (turning 22) and beyond. Sweet Inspirations will also act as a training facility for improving vocational opportunities within our community.
As we look to the future, this business initiative is centered on addressing a most critical area that will help shape our collective future, will provide purpose for those we serve, and will be an inspiration to our local communities. We believe the need to provide vocational and employment opportunities for those we serve will create not only a career path for them, but is paramount to their future growth and success.
