We have converted what was once a coffee shop into our office space. It will function in variety of community centered ways. Until COVID the loyal lovers of gourmet coffee, will still be able to get their coffee by way of our donor ship program at our space but unfortunately because of covid we sold off the equipment to stay open. we still have our community center for a variety of art related activities, support groups, and many educational workshops.
For five years at our Headquarters, in exchange for a cup of coffee, we have a conversation about child sexual abuse (and related issues). The coffee-for-conversation approach has since developed into an extremely effective community outreach program I am sorry to say that COVID killed this program donation vanished to almost nothing but selling the equipment made it so we could keep a safe space for survivors. Our HQ is the space that all of our team members work, grow, and discern the best strategies to prevent the sexual abuse and exploitation of children.And above all, it will serve as the hub of Childhood Fractured. This will be the space that all of our team members will be working, growing, and discerning the best strategies to prevent the sexual abuse and exploitation of children. This is only the beginning.
Giving Away Free Coffee Ended Because of COVID
This was an amazing program for a Conversation about Childhood Sexual Abuse
Child sexual abuse is an otherwise difficult subject to talk about, but we’ve found that being surrounded by the artwork and having a fresh cup of coffee helps our efforts immensely.
Every day we are organically reaching at least 40 people. They come into
the coffee shop and we have a conversation about child sexual abuse in ex- change for a free cup of coffee. We are also a safe space where people can disclose their abuse for the first time. This has been an amazing success thus far. We are reaching people, person-by-person, daily! It is truly grass-roots!
