Garth Larcen went one step further. He opened a restaurant where his son, and dozens of others - have found hope and inspiration. The Early Show correspondent Melinda Murphy reports.
It's not just the food or the live entertainment that makes the place worthy of its name: Positive Vibe. No, it's something more that makes this café special where everyone is welcome and anyone can work, a restaurant created specifically for people with disabilities.
Of the 24 paid employees, 14 have some type of disability like Jesse Williams, paralyzed by a spinal cord injury, who works in the kitchen.
"They gave me a job here," Williams says. "The work is the best thing about it."
Jesnique Medina works front of house. She's battling muscular dystrophy.
Medina notes, "I'm sick all the time so this was probably the first place that I went and got a job so I was really excited. They don't really act like I have a condition or I'm in a wheelchair.
