OUR STORY

Coffee for Good is not your ordinary high-end coffee shop, it is also a training platform for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  Our goal is to create a self-sustaining, nonprofit organization that provides training and jobs for people with disabilities.  Coffee for Good will be giving our trainees the opportunity to succeed and be part of the local workforce.

OUR MISSION IS TO IMPROVE THE LIVES OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES BY REDUCING THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IN THAT COMMUNITY.

Coffee for Good's three goals are:

To employ and train as many people with disabilities as possible

To be a self-sustaining nonprofit coffee shop

To be a warm and inclusive community gathering place

Coffee for Good will be located in the 1858 Mead House on the campus of Second Congregational Church.  The historic Mead House is a warm “Old World” setting for a coffee shop which is conveniently located in central Greenwich with ample parking.

WHY COFFEE FOR GOOD?


Coffee for Good is part of a nationwide trend of over 30 independent coffee shops in 22 states that have opened in the last few years with the objective of employing people with disabilities, a community that suffers from chronic unemployment rates of over 80%. Fortunately modern technologies and automated coffee equipment make retail jobs possible for people with disabilities, provided they receive the right training. The training platform at Coffee for Good is crucial to our mission: reducing unemployment levels within our local community. We believe that after six to twelve months of employment and training, our employees will find competitive jobs in the community.

Coffee for Good relies on a large and diverse group of volunteers to help us fulfill our goals. Click here if you are interested in volunteering.

Opening Soon!

The Mead House will be renovated by 2CC before Coffee for Good starts building the coffee shop. 2CC renovations include a new back entrance with a wheel chair lift, two ADA bathrooms and many other significant upgrades.

Coffee for Good will open in 2021 after building its barista bar, installing equipment, lighting and furniture for the coffee shop.

We can't wait to see you in our shop!
