A new coffee shop recently opened in Covington, Ky. with a mission to not only revitalize the downtown area but also to provide jobs for people with developmental disabilities.

Point Perk, 104 West Pike St., took over a former restaurant space and is operated by The Point/ARC of Northern Kentucky. The coffee shop employs five individuals with disabilities along with professional baristas, and it also is a way to teach people in the community about The Point and its services.
