Our Story

The Cookie Place began in 1982, to provide supported job training and professional development to people with disabilities.

Today, our goals remain the same:

  • to operate a competitive and sustainable food service business which provides high-quality cookies and food items at retail.

  • to help adults with psychiatric disorders become as productive and independent as possible, through job training, placement and employment

  • to benefit our community – our funding partners, our vendors, our employees and our dedicated staff – with quality services and profitable product

Thank You
When others would not give our clients a chance because of their disability, Cookie Place did. We would like to thank our partners: the State of RI’s Department of Behavioral Healthcare, Developmental Disabilities and Hospitals (BHDDH) for the operations grant that keeps our programs and services alive.
