At PiesAbilities, every delicious, artisan pie we make has a greater purpose: To promote diversity and inclusion in greater Gainesville. We offer skills-based training, paid internships and meaningful employment to adults with disabilities. PiesAbilities was founded in late 2019 by Jennifer Dempsey, a mother of a child with disabilities and a former ESE (Exceptional Student Education) instructor in Florida. After discovering that individuals with disabilities make up almost one-fifth of our population but are unemployed at a rate that is twice that of people without disabilities, Jennifer was inspired to start a business that would help close this gap and become a successful model for other for-profit businesses to follow. Jennifer is determined to create a future with limitless piesabilities for her daughter Joscelyn and many others, one pie at a time.
We come to you! We do not operate a brick and mortar location at this time.
