Since 1984, our neighbors at Hospitality House have been providing housing, shelter, hunger relief, homeless prevention, street outreach, counseling and crisis assistance in Northwest NC.
With humble beginnings on King St in downtown Boone, Hospitality House now services seven rural North Carolina counties (Watauga, Wilkes, Ashe, Avery, Alleghany, Mitchell, Yancey) with multiple different housing programs, from emergency and winter shelter, family housing, domestic violence transitional housing, to permanent supportive housing.
Their community kitchen serves 3-meals-a-day every day of the year and they operate a 7-days-a-week food pantry. They offer crisis assistance to households in our community facing eviction, utility cutoffs, heating fuel shortage and prescription medication needs through their Western Crisis Assistance Network (WeCAN). Lastly they run RISE (Relationships Intended for Self-Sufficiency & Empowerment), a program meant to bring together people from diverse backgrounds to learn about the effects of poverty, privilege, and trauma on our lives and our community with a curriculum focused on building abundance in finances, relationships, resources, and community.
In an effort to raise funds, provide a platform to, and create awareness of the services they offer, we've partnered with Hospitality House to create their very own chosen and blended coffee.
This coffee consists of a darker roast profile of our Colombia Cauca ASMUCAFE blended with our Brazil Minas Gerais from Fazenda Cachoeira de Grama, creating a decadently rich, chocolatey cup full of all the heavy brown sugary notes of molasses and caramel. A winter warmer cup that just feels right on a chilly day.
$6 for every bag sold will be donated to Hospitality House. In addition, we are grateful to announce that we were approached by an anonymous donor who has pledged to match every bag sold with the donation of a new blanket, a much needed item in the colder months.
