How We Make an Impact


In a world of technology, we sometimes forget to take a moment to look up and connect with the people around us. Java Joy is built on the joy of a simple interaction with a person of all abilities.


70% of adults with disabilities can & want to work but only 35% are employed in meaningful work

Most Importantly… Joy

ESP saw that people visiting ESP left with a unique, transformative joy. We knew that there was a need to share this joy beyond ESP’s doors.
