Making A difference

Join the SeamonWhiteside March Madness bracket!

Your generous support will directly benefit the Community Matters Cafe Life Skills Program. Your contribution helps the students in our program work through essential life skills and foster a positive impact in their communities.

The true focus of Community Matters Cafe are the students in the 180-day life skills and rehabilitation program at Charlotte Rescue Mission. With the support of staff members who guide, train and work alongside students to serve the community, students experience the stressors of a restaurant as a way to practice and implement the life skills needed to transition back into daily life. Our students rotate through various positions in the restaurant and coffee shop, allowing them to add to their skill set while affirming their confidence in themselves and the community around them. 

While addiction does not discriminate, a common factor we see is a detachment from the community. At Community Matters Cafe, we welcome you to join us in restoring that hope. 

Thank you for being a part of this meaningful journey.

Success Talk...

“I love the culture and mission still! And I like the amount of freedom that I’m given to grow and learn within my leadership. I LOVE the people (both students and staff) that I get to work with, as they have become an extension of my family.”
