We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit social enterprise that believes in the possibility that coffee and community can help transform the lives of young people, one cup at a time.
We support our programs through sales from the coffee shop, but also through the generous support of individuals who are passionate about our mission. When you make a donation you are helping provide a space for homeless and street-involved young people to transform their lives and are empowering us to grow this program. Through your generosity you enable us to help more street-involved young people in the future.
Whether you donate one time or on a recurring basis, as a 501(c)3 nonprofit your donations are tax deductible and we will provide a receipt for tax purposes.
