Project Description

 

CUPs Coffeehouse is dedicated to bringing you great coffee and food.  Through food and beverage sales we are committed to creating opportunities for local youth with employment barriers, such as low education attainment, former incarceration and mental health challenges while also building community.  CUPs works directly with Project I CAN, a program of Fusion Partnerships, to provide hands-on workforce development for disconnected youth living in Baltimore City. 

We are raising money on iFundWomen in order to continue offering employment, training, and mentorship opportunities to youth with employment barriers in the Baltimore area.  The work we do at CUPs is not easy, but it is absolutely essential and we can't continue doing it without you. Thank you!

CUPs (Creating Unlimited Possibilities) got its start from a passion and a problem -- a passion for great lattes and helping young people realize their full potential, and the problem that neither was readily available in the Hollins Market neighborhood where co-founders Holly Shook and Brian Gray live. They created CUPs Coffeehouse as an answer for both.

At CUPs Coffeehouse, we believe that without additional opportunities to gain necessary job, communication, and life skills, a legacy of unemployment, insufficient income levels, above-average arrest rates, and parental absenteeism will continue. Job opportunities must be made accessible to people who want to want to break these cycles, in an environment focused on training and developing practical job and life skills that are transferable to any career or life circumstance. 

CUPs Coffeehouse works directly with Project I CAN - a program of Fusion Partnerships, to provide opportunities for disconnected youth living in Baltimore City.  CUPs Coffeehouse is dedicated to providing a great coffeehouse experience and changing lives in our community.

We believe there is a place for everyone at CUPs Coffeehouse, and we welcome your desire to become a part of the CUPs family. Whether you are looking for a job, a volunteer opportunity, a creative space, a fresh start, or a great cup of coffee, join us at CUPs Coffeehouse!
