What is a "for-benefit" coffeehouse?
On the outside we might look like every other coffeehouse; boasting about our house-roasted Fair-Trade coffee alongside our house-baked pastries on Instagram all amongst the backdrop of our industrial chic interior décor. But in reality, coffee is only part of our passion. What we genuinely care about are people.
We are working our hardest not just to provide you with the best cup of coffee you've ever had, but to strengthen our community while we’re at it. Because at the end of the day, coffee gets you through a lot of things, but it’s no substitute for the amazing people who live and work all around you.
Agree with any of this? Support us by making a donation. Share it with someone. Know someone who needs help? Send them our way. Feeling the need for a caffeine fix? Join us for a cup to strengthen our community.
After living in the Indianapolis area for over 30 years we have seen progress and positive moments, but we have also seen sadness and decay and known first hand so many hurting people and families. Take a second to think. Do you know someone who has been divorced? Do you know someone who has struggled with addiction?
Odds are you said yes to at least one of those questions if not both and that breaks our heart. And that’s why we do what we do.
Coffeehouse Five exists to serve the community. We call ourselves a For-Benefit because as a registered nonprofit we don’t reap the benefits of our profit, our community does. Every single item sold at Coffeehouse Five fuels our ability to provide marriage and addictions counseling completely free of charge.
We also realize we are stronger in community than on our own, so the money doesn’t stop there. We also support other local non-profit organizations each month to help them love and serve our community in ways we can’t.
