Since 2011 The Coffee Shop, run by St. Martin’s Hospitality Center has given people stable work when finding a job without a home can be the hardest thing in the world.
“We really try to ask people, did you know a cup of coffee can change a life? And we really want people to know that it really can,” said Development Director Monet Silva-Caldwell. “Imagine if you were waking up on the streets.”
Workers come as they are and for four months, they become paid interns and boost their resumes at the shop on 2nd and Lomas.
