Old Skool Cafe (on my San Fran Bucket list!)
Dream Development stashed this in What If? Why Not? Who Says?
The founder (also a friend) started this program on her retirement savings. Looks like the atmosphere for inspiration and transformation. Will visit one day soon!
Old Skool Cafe is a 1940s-style restaurant run entirely by young people from difficult circumstances:
The bistro is in one of San Francisco's roughest neighborhoods, but inside, the atmosphere is warm and inviting. Customers come from all over the city to enjoy the food and entertainment and to support Goines' mission, which provides jobs, career training and a built-in support system to at least 25 at-risk people each year.
Wow, if only there were more places like this!
