Changing the world for homeless youth in one community after another through evidence-based youth programs supported by sustainable coffee businesses.
WHAT DO WE DO?
The Coffee Oasis is a faith-based, non-profit organization that consists of two things: real coffee and real hope.
Our cafés provide community gathering places, and serve our self-roasted coffee from direct-trade coffee beans. The Coffee Oasis youth programs offer friendship, belonging, resources, and opportunity to homeless and street-oriented youth, ages 13-25. All proceeds from the businesses support the Oasis youth programs.
Our hope is that youth know that they are wanted – that they belong. They don’t need to keep running, angry and alone.
We hope they grow up to be good and wise men and women.
We hope they are restored in relationship with their family, their community, and God.
