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.
All the members of the Clubhouse would like to take this time to invite you and yours to our Harvest Moon Gala. It will be held on Sept. 21st, 2017. This year it will be at the Katherine Legge Memorial Lodge in Hinsdale, Il. A good and enjoyable time will be had by all the attendees. Your friends and coworkers will enjoy the fabulous spread that is placed before you. You will get a chance to converse with members, staff, and volunteers at our facility.
Starting this week you can find our delicious muffins for sale at the Elmhurst Farmers Market! Every muffin is made and packaged by a brain injury survivor from our Social Enterprise Bakery, FLOUR TO EMPOWER.
We hope that you will support our mission by making a donation, volunteering or purchasing one of our delicious baked goods!
