Don’t Miss an Opportunity to Make a Difference
Love the Coffee. Love the Cause.
We’re happy to hear from our friends either way.
“I was homeless, lost, had no direction and was scared of my future. Now, 5 years later, I am starting a family with the love of my life and living independently. I haven’t been homeless since I graduated their program. I learned how to be strong and to never give up. I couldn’t thank PDC enough for everything they’ve done for me. No matter how long ago I was there, It will always feel like family.“

I enjoy Purple Door Coffee. They have good coffee and the menu isn’t overwhelming. The mission here is amazing, and they make the area they are in a little bit nicer! They also roast their own coffee now, and it’s definitely worth buying.

“Knowing the community of Purple Door, I have always felt accepted and like I belonged but I really felt like I meant something when I started training people at the roaster and that felt better than almost anything.”
