Community Cafe


We have an amazing team of over 100 volunteers who make our café a fun and special place. We have volunteers of all ages and by having so many, each volunteer can ​help only once a month or as often as they wish. Volunteers work in teams so it is a fun way to meet people, develop new skills and give something back to our community. ​If you’re interested in joining us ask one of the volunteers for details or email:
