New Leaf Café received a $10,000 grant from Innovia Foundation Community Grant Program. These funds will support the new Central Library Café location, which is slated to open in July 2022. This location will train men as well as women, and its proximity to Community Court will provide increased opportunities for trainees to access New Leaf and other Transitions programming.
New Leaf Café is a free 3-month and 6-month hands on barista training program at our full service café. Every trainee gains full espresso knowledge training, retail sales and food industry experience. The New Leaf programs blend education, hands-on work experience, and supportive services designed to help trainees gain the self-confidence and professional skills necessary for self-sufficiency.
Thank you Innovia Foundation!
