About Beneficial Beans
Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center (SARRC) Beneficial Beans initiative applies commercial strategies, tactics and discipline to create employment training opportunities for adults with autism enrolled in SARRC programs. Nationally, more than 90 percent of adults with autism are unemployed or underemployed. How do we, as a society, empower this group of citizens to achieve their rightful place as engaged, involved members of their community? SARRC has taken on this challenge by offering employment preparation internships within our Beneficial Beans Garden and retail store to those enrolled in one of SARRC’s teen or adult programs.
