Welcome!

Welcome to Cakeable Charlotte! As a nonprofit organization which is compelled by Christ’s love and fueled by faith, we offer job skills training for students who have different abilities. We believe that every person has God-given value and potential, and we’re creating a place where everyone has the opportunity to contribute with purpose.

Out of those fundamental values and beliefs, we are equipping individuals who have intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) to be capable and successful employees in integrated workplaces within our community.

OUR MISSION: To empower people, businesses, and communities to achieve their fullest potential through inclusive environments.

OUR PURPOSE: To inspire through by the vision of a fully – and joyfully – inclusive community.

Seventy to eighty percent of people who live with intellectual and developmental disabilities are unemployed or underemployed. Cakeable equips our participants to become self-advocates in building bridges across the employment gap in Charlotte. We envision Charlotte as a community which wholeheartedly embraces the multiple benefits of including persons of all abilities in every arena of life.

Cakeable Charlotte’s program is housed in the Sweet Spot Kitchen where our students and employees learn, bake, and create in this amazing, inclusive environment.

Our classes are funded through donations and revenue from our sales at the Uptown Farmers Market, bake sales, and pop-up sales where our students practice customer service skills.

You can also find our baked goods at Julia’s Cafe and Books and our non-edible products (candles, sugar scrubs, and more) at Kimberli’s Place.

Please follow our Facebook and Instagram pages to see our students’ current menus and products!
