Phoenix has been dubbed “an autism friendly city” by multiple sources and one of the reasons is the work of Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center (SARRC), a nonprofit organization that provides a variety of services for those with ASD and those impacted by it.

Recently, SARRC open its second Beneficial Beans Café location inside of Burton Barr Central Library. The cafe, which is part of SARRC’s social enterprise program, is now accessible 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday and serves coffee and a variety of food items to library visitors and employees. However, its most distinct feature is serving as a workplace-training program for young adults with ASD.
