Ada’s Cafe

Grab a coffee or delicious, organic picnic lunch and head over to the playground, or relax after playing at the park with a frozen treat.

In addition to delicious food, Ada’s Cafe brings community together in a unique social entrepreneurial business. Ada’s Cafe invites local youth to participate in Cafe operations – as job buddies – alongside cafe associates as they believe that meaningful work and life experiences connect young people to their communities.

LSA Homes – Life Service Alternatives

Founded in 2001, Life Services Alternatives (LSA) emerged from the efforts of parents and other concerned stakeholders who had a dream of establishing homes in the community for their adult children with special needs. With a new California law that supported alternative care solutions and the imminent closure of state developmental centers, LSA began a journey to establish quality homes and nurturing services so adults with developmental disabilities — including those with enduring medical needs — could receive life-long services in the community. Today, LSA operates 11 licensed, residential care homes in Santa Clara County. To enhance our mission to provide exceptional community-based living experiences and services for people with special needs, a Community Integration Training Program was launched in 2013 and offers vocational skills training through volunteer work. LSA continues to pursue innovative programs and services because we believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can.
