The mission of Hugs is to enhance the lives of adults with special needs through training and employment. Hugs Cafe has been in the making for more than 15 years and began as a simple passion for people. Our Founder and President, Ruth Thompson, found this passion in the early 2000’s while working with Adults with Special needs in Parker, Colorado at New Day In-Home and Respite Care. This served as the foundation for Hugs Cafe and would ultimately lead to its formation in 2013. Without her inspiration, her drive and her determination, we would not be here today.
