Our Mission

Creating The Best Coffee in the Town... With A Purpose

Our mission is to develop the skills of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities through employment, education and training. We will provide an exceptional customer experience while serving the finest cup of coffee in Richmond. We believe that all people have the ability to thrive when given the opportunity to learn in a supportive environment.  

Keri Lee is a Special Education teacher in Chesterfield, Virginia and has always had the dream of opening a coffee shop that allows her to employ people with disabilities, and teach them everyday skills that cannot be learned in a classroom.

Now, the Thrive Foundation is ready to take the leap and begin to start their coffee shop – and we need your help. We have decided on a location and have begun purchasing the equipment and coffee needed to get started!  Funds from the sales at the coffee shop will be going back into the education of the employees, and we need your help to make this happen.

This project is launching soon in Midlothian, Virginia. We need all of the help that we can get. If you are interested in supporting us, please consider donating. Thank you!
