Moms Of Special-Needs Children Open Coffeehouse

KSAL StaffJuly 30, 2014

A Kansas mother of a 27-year-old autistic son has joined with three other mothers of special needs children and young adults to create a business where they all can work.

MOXI Junction is a coffeehouse, bakery and art gallery that opened Monday in Maize, north of Wichita. It’s the idea of Joanna Kilgore, who says she was desperate to find a job for her son Laran, who had struggled to find work after high school.

MOXI stands for Moms of Exceptional Individuals and serves as a workplace for mothers and their children who would otherwise be unemployed.

Kilgore says about 100 people showed up for a ribbon cutting on Monday and helped meet her goal of 200 coffees sold in a day.
