Preventing Loneliness

Open Door CafeThe Cafe

The cafe opens its doors each weekday morning, for anyone in the community to come, receive hot coffee and donuts, and have conversations. The cafe seeks to tackle loneliness, creating a warm and welcoming space that encourages people to build relationships and create community.

“For many years, this has been my home away from home,” said Butch Wright, who’s been coming to Open Door most weekdays for twenty years. “This has been a place to come, to sit down and talk for a while, to become a part of a family.”

The cafe has been recently refurbished with new floors, paint, and decorations. The cafe is open weekdays from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
