ETB's mission and vision

Our MISSION at Ethan & the Bean is to empower and support neurodivergent/IDD individuals in various workforce development skills related to hospitality. These specific skills are taught through our hands on training programs and/or competitive integrated employment (CIE), with the hope of building job readiness, social awareness,  self-esteem and so much more. 

Our VISION is to continue to grow our mission to reduce the unemployment rate for individuals in our community and beyond.
