Since 2008, we have wanted to operate a café in which 100% of the money brought in would go to charitable causes working to end human trafficking. In the past, this has not been possible. because of the overhead involved in opening a café. In 2011 we acquired property on campus that brought this dream to life. With all bills paid by the tenants living on the second floor, and an eager group of socially minded students willing to volunteer their time, we have an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people around the world.
Our goal is simple. To serve our guest, and raise $18,000 to build a vocational center each year for victims along with those at risk of being victimized and those rescued from bondage.
We are also committed to educating our guests, and those in our community about human trafficking, while giving them an opportunity to join us in stopping it.
James 1:22 "But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the world and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he is like."
James 2:14 "What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works is dead."
Luke 4:18-19 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
