They change lives through a consistent delivery of free educational, therapeutic-based, and career development programs for individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and the community, through a replicable Playhouse model.

Employing Individuals With Special Abilities
The Pilo’s brand is one of the largest employers for individuals with “special abilities” in the hospitality sector. It works closely with local and national organizations to source the best talent and heart of the Pilo’s family. People with “special abilities” make up the largest minority in the US and it is committed to shattering the disability employment gap. Pilo’s is committed to having at least 20 percent of the staff hired at the restaurant to be individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities — which Pilo’s calls “special abilities.” Working alongside Gigi’s Playhouse, Best Buddies and Our Pride Academy to employ these individuals in hopes to help other Miami residents just like them “achieve their dreams, increase their independence and provide companionship.” The ultimate goal is to be the biggest employer of adults with special abilities in the country.
