People with disabilities are among the most marginalized groups in the world. People with disabilities have poorer health outcomes, lower education achievements, less economic participation and higher rates of poverty than people without disabilities. The Yarmouth Association for Community Residential Options (YACRO) is trying to change these statistics by creating Social Enterprises that hires people with disabilities to create great food, games, furniture, soaps and candles (to name a few).
If you are looking for a gift or home improvement item, please check out All-Ways-Us https://www.facebook.com/AllWaysUs/, The Store Next Door https://www.facebook.com/thestorenextdoorns/ www.thestorenextdoor.ca and The Shanty Cafe https://www.facebook.com/ShantyCafe/ to check out our products and mission to make the world a better place for people with disabilities.
We are continually seeking out new ways of fund-raising that will help offset our costs. One of these efforts is starting a fund-raising auction site, The Yarmouth Social Enterprises https://www.facebook.com/yarmouthsocialenterprises/.
The Yarmouth and area community can really help our Social Enterprises in many ways:
1. Check out our auction site and like us to see the great items we have
2. Donate new or gently used items (no books or used clothing please) in working condition for us to auction. These items can be dropped off at The Store Next Door, 6 Central St, Yarmouth or you can call us at 902-742-7867 if you need items picked up
3. Drop by The Shanty Cafe, 6 Central St, Yarmouth for a bite and if you like our food, come on back
4. Shop for gifts at The Store Next Door in Yarmouth, or All-Ways-Us 1 Gloster Court in Dartmouth when you're out and about - we may just have the perfect gift choice for you
