For Change Cafe Locations

Each time you stop by one of our cafes, you’re playing a vital role, as 100% of profits are reinvested into our programs.

All our cafes, operated under For Change Co., serve as training hubs for Pathways For Change, a paid employment and workplace training initiative designed to empower participants to break free from the cycle of youth homelessness.

Focused on individual development, participants of our program (referred to as trainees) undertake training and employment at our For Change Cafes, earning award wages while acquiring skills and experience applicable to any workplace. These are crucial for trainees as they look to transition to further employment and education, breaking the cycle of homelessness
