With your help in this fundraiser, we will be able to purchase our furniture and complete the construction of our beautiful Promise Café and Bakery - and you will have the ability to leave a legacy with our naming opportunities! Thanks to an anymous donor, every donation made will be matched dollar-for-dollar in order to help us reach our goal.
With an open date set for October 2017, the Promise Café & Bakery, located at 3000 Minton Road, West Melbourne, in West Melbourne Community Park and next to the Space Coast Field of Dreams, will serve as a beacon of hope for individuals with special needs in our community. The second of our 10 social enterprises, it will feature a café/bakery, where our Promisers will serve our customers, a WiFi bar overlooking the City of West Melbourne’s future Skate Park, a private dining room, a country store featuring many of our pre-packed menu items, a handicapped-accessible walk-up to-go window and ice-cream corner, as well as an outdoor pavilion, overlooking the City of West Melbourne’s future splash pad. We will offer made-from-scratch menu items, organic soda and a variety of fresh, healthy and homemade signature items.
The Promise Cafe & Bakery's unique model is designed to foster a sense of independence by developing and harnessing the abilities of its staff and their engagement with members of the community in which they, too, reside. It will represent something so much more than an eatery. It will serve as a welcoming haven for all who visit, while simultaneously providing vocational training, employment and a sense of purpose to individuals with special needs.
