Synapse House has officially launched its Flour to Empower Bakery and Employment Program to provide much needed job training opportunities to individuals affected by brain injury and stroke. We are the only social enterprise specific to individuals with acquired brain injury in the Chicago Metropolitan area.
The Employment Program of Synapse House provides a Work Readiness Program, a Culinary Internship and Supported Employment at our bakery. Individuals will be trained by our experienced Pastry Chef, Christine and work to obtain their Food Handlers Card.
The Flour to Empower Bakery has wonderfully delicious muffins and breads including a blueberry lemon muffin, apple cranberry muffin, cinnamon roll muffin, chocolate bread and a carrot berry bread. These items are available for purchase, as well as cool t-shirts, on the website at synapsehouse.org/online-shop.html. We hope that you will support our mission by purchasing one of our delicious baked goods or products!
You are invited to stop by our booth at the Elmhurst Farmer's Market on Wednesdays to shop and to meet those individuals who are working hard to recover from acquired brain injury as well as the dedicated staff.
