How did you learn about the Cafe and what made you want to volunteer with us?

In the fall of 2012, a dear friend Sarah Foushee, got me hooked on serving at the Crescent City Cafe! We had recently started therapy school together and were talking about our passions. I mentioned that I enjoyed serving others, especially the marginalized. She told me about a Cafe that she had been volunteering with for about a year and said that I needed to join her for the next one. I signed up, not knowing how this “service project” would change me… For the entire following year, I only missed serving 1 Cafe and it was my wedding day!

 

When the organization expanded to 2 Cafes/month, I was asked to take on a new role in the kitchen… I had my reservations because I don’t have very refined cooking skills! I’m glad that I accepted the challenge because now I’ve been in the kitchen for a year and wouldn’t have it any other way!!!

 

A friend introduced me to the Cafe. The Cafe provided new friendships and an opportunity for personal growth in addition to serving wonderful guests month after month. I’m forever changed and so thankful for this group of people!!
