A Firm Foundation


Through your generous giving, you will expand our impact in this next chapter of Old Skool Cafe! Our campaign goals:

  • Pay off our mortgage and reinvest that capital into expanding our youth programs.
  • Renovate our restaurant to add features that will increase earned revenue and financial sustainability:
    • An old fashioned bar-- a gathering place for you, your friends, and our community!
    • A stage to launch the careers of  future music stars, award-winning chefs, and leaders
    • A semi-private dining space for meetings, private events, and parties
    • A new wheelchair accessible entrance with an Old Skool history walk way that tells our story 

Thank you for giving to Old Skool Cafe by helping bring transformative solutions to big problems!  Together we can help more youth move from merely surviving to thriving!  Learn more about our story here.

Old Skool Cafe is a youth-run restaurant that mentors and employs youth affected by incarceration, foster care and other challenges. We believe that with jobs, mentorship, and a whole lot of love, they can and will break the cycle of poverty and incarceration.
