At the Village Bakery we create products that people love while “baking a difference” in the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities. Located in downtown Oregon, IL, we offer fresh baked goods coffee, frozen drinks and ice cream. At the Village Bakery adults with disabilities will work shoulder to shoulder with a professional staff, learning skills needed for employment. The goal is to gain a resume and a reference; giving potential future employers the assurance they need to hire with confidence. People with disabilities can have an active and meaningful role in today’s world of work – they just need a better way.
