New Jersey Cafe Serves Coffee and Life-Changing Opportunities for People With Developmental Disabilities
An unlikely friendship warms hearts, and a cafe serves up coffee and inspiration, on this week's Good Start. » Subscribe to NowThis Entertainment: https://go.nowth.is/Entertainment_Subscribe » Sign up for our newsletter KnowThis to get the biggest stories of the day delivered straight to your inbox: https://go.nowth.is/KnowThis In our first story this week, meet two friends: high school football star Elliot Brown, and 6-year-old McKinley Blue. The two have a very unique friendship. Back in May of 2018, McKinley was on her way to preschool with her grandmother when their car was hit from behind by a large vehicle. It was then that Elliot, whose family is friends with McKinley's family, began to regularly visit McKinley in the hospital while she was recovering from a traumatic brain injury. Now that McKinley has made a full recovery, the tables have turned, and she now visits Elliot at his football games, as his number one Cheerleader! In our second story of the week, we visit a cafe that's working to change how people view those with disabilities, one cup of coffee at a time. We spoke with Pamela Donovan, the owner of 'Ethan and the Bean', a cozy cafe in Little Falls, New Jersey, with an extraordinary mission. The mission of the cafe is to employ individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, such as autism, asperger's, and down syndrome, and to change the mindset of society and how people perceive persons with disabilities.
