1st Annual Life House Competition

Coffee for a Cause
As the world has experienced COVID 19, our hearts go out to everyone in these unprecedented times.
Due to COVID 19 Coffee for a Cause will be closed indefinitely. We will keep you posted on any coffee programs offered in the future. In the meantime, please continue to support our newest effort, LIFE House, a house in the town of Boone being leased to two individuals with I/DD who are learning the life skills needed to live more independently.
