A few more Benefits
We advocate for mental health and wellness on a community level with the community we serve. In our attempt to show that not everyone is equal but it does not mean the individual cannot be self sufficient or contribute to the community.
Safe Key after school Kids check in parent pick up. That is CHILD CARE at a non profit.
Our Coffee House of Wellness could be a busy place at various times and locations, size need and getting the word out will be critical to the community. We are hoping free internet will benefit students at surrounding schools.
A local coffee house needs to have a Jazz Night on Friday and Saturdays for non professional high school Jazz bands to play. 7 PM to 9PM. We open to seating capacity for parent to come and listen to Jazz Music for every five dollars spent 20 minutes of free internet can be donated to the school of your choice. 10 % of all sales and tips raised from 7 PM to 9 PM would go to the jazz band performing.
Where as after midnight requires and a more grown up open mic night on weekends.
To provide a safe environment we are asking that security at the entrance require everyone walk through a metal detector. Bags will be inspected. We ask that all firearms and weapons be left outside despite any permits to carry.
We ask that all employees customers vendors and clients produce record of vaccination to enter the premises. Because some of us might be medically fragile, and we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
While we go out of our way to train our employees to provide awesome Coustomer service, verbal abuse about a persons abilities will not be tolerated.
Things to consider.
We provide access to Safe and Limited internet. everyone must log in to use the internet. Yes your history is monitor. Yes will report any illegal or suspicious or bullying activity.
While healthcare is protected information a transactable record for payment is required.
I see the first Otherside Cafe slightly bigger than it needs to be to push the boundaries of what the community needs as well as what we can provide and measure the response.
While I truly see the cafe making a profit a livable wage for our employees and trainees is a priority.
Our plan is to work closely with Opportunity Village to help make mental healthcare and wellness and important part of our relationship in working with people and families with disabilities. As well as safety in a public setting.
