Best Futures, Inc.

On January 7, 2012, Best Futures began operating the concession stand at Centennial Ice Arena, part of the Park District of Highland Park. The Best Futures Cafe employs a staff of more than 22 teens and adults with special needs who are serving up delicious food, snacks and drinks to the community.


Best Futures, Inc., is an Illinois not-for-profit organization whose mission is to empower people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to move forward: living, working and contributing in the community. Best Futures strives to create pattern-breaking change and to highlight the capability of people who are differently-abled.


The first initiative of Best Futures, Inc., is the Best Futures Cafe at Centennial Ice Arena: a community-centered competitive employment venue for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Cafe is a social enterprise that is providing paid work experience to over twenty-two individuals, while offering the community a wide variety of snacks and beverages.
