Hope Café

What if a cup of coffee could feed the hungry?  What if a sandwich could help an person experiencing homelessness get a job?  What if an ice cold drink could give hope to someone who has lost all hope?

It can!

The St. Martin’s Hope Café was awarded the New Mexico Coalition to End Homelessness’ Non-profit Innovation Award for 2013. Hope Café serves as an employment training site for individuals attempting to leave the streets and escape poverty.  Let’s celebrate the hard work and imagination we use to help our clients leave homelessness! Come try our amazing gourmet coffee and specialty foods while St. Martin’s programs!
