When the director of the Friendship Circle of Wisconsin heard his story, he knew the organization had to do something.
That is how the Friendship Bakery was born. Six people with special needs have been employed in the program since it officially took off in July.
"It's kind of a comfort knowing that they're going to eat it and you're making it for people," said Weingrod.
A hallmark of Friendship Circle is to bring volunteers into families homes to build friendship. Their bakery program is focused on adults. The end-goal is to help them have the skills to get hired by businesses in the Milwaukee-area.
