Marginalized News Commentary for Changemakers

It is a delight to start another new Java Hope program. We are now recruiting new applicants at Hope Clinic in Ypsilanti, MI. Eventually we will purchase our own building. However right now we realize that our clients are unable to travel to us because they lack transportation. So, we are going to them! 

I am very excited to help them escape poverty and embark into a new exciting and meaningful career. They will learn how to own and operate a coffee cart business. This is a micro-business with low overhead. The women will work in teams to cover shift changes. 

The entreprenurial program teaches all phases of owning a coffee business. It also teaches management skills in the hospitality industry. If they prefer to work for someone, we help them get good jobs earning sustainable wages. 

Some of the new clients are amazing. They understand the impact of Michigan’s new 5 year term  for welfare. They are very motivated to leave welfare forever! I cannot wait for them to experience the change and become self-sufficient.

Finally, I interviewed a young lady and explained the program to her. She was ‘sold!’ At the end of the meeting she grabbed my hand and said “You have given me Hope!’ My eyes filled with tears and I thought….yes, that’s what this program is really about – HOPE!.
