Dialogue Coffee House

Dialogue Coffee House, a local coffee house, joined our job training and employment program for adults with disabilities on April 3, 2023. This partnership allows Capper Foundation to meet the growing needs of our community and enhance our job training and community placement initiatives. This local favorite breakfast and lunch stop aligns with Capper’s mission and allows the organization to support more individuals in the community with career training and opportunities to be valued and enjoy access and independence to advance their hopes and dreams. 

Caitlyn Halsey, the founder of Dialogue, now serves as our Employment Services Director, continuing to provide leadership and oversight of Dialogue. Caitlyn’s efforts to provide employment opportunities to adults with disabilities, whose care may be outside of Capper’s services, complements the support of our Adult Day and Residential clients in job training and placement. Expanding access to employment for all adults with disabilities through extended opportunities helps meet the needs of our community.

In Fall 2023, two new locations opened to further our mission and enrich our communities. The expansion allows us to employ additional individuals living with disabilities teaching them life skills, providing them hard-earned paychecks, and helping them find purpose in their work so they can be contributing members of our society. In Spring 2024, a fourth location opened at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas (BCBSKS) in Topeka. This partnership blends Dialogue’s commitment to the employment of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities with BCBSKS, a local company, embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion in their everyday work.
