Nick's Differently Awesome Outreach was formed in 2018 after Nick's Shaved Ice Paradise, a food truck selling shaved ice, began receiving numerous inquiries from parents wanting their developmentally disabled loved ones to be hired. Nick's currently employs 6 individuals who have developmental disabilities such as Down syndrome and autism. These young people could not find, or hold, a job and Nick's provides safe and meaningful jobs for them.
Nick's employees make more than minimum wage but are only able to work 6 months of the year because of the seasonal nature of shaved ice.
The long term goal is to purchase a bigger trailer so that we can offer more items that can be sold year-round. Your support will make all of this possible.
You can read the amazing story of how it took 20 years for Nick's dad to come up with the idea for Nick's and how it grew from a simple snow cone stand to a nonprofit organization that is changing lives. Click here to read the story.
