Be 1 in a 100!
Our goal is 100 people donating at least $10/month!

Your $10 gift every month – combined with 100 people doing the same thing – will help us create another part-time job for one of our amazing women! Watch the video below and  learn more about their stories. These women come to the Coffee Connection with a history of substance abuse, many coming out of prison – that’s what “qualifies” them to work here. And as interns and then employees, they build sustainable recovery and self-sufficient lives for themselves and their families.

Can you give $10 a month to save a life?
