Sacred Grounds Coffee House Welcomes You
Sacred Grounds Coffee House is a nonprofit 501(c)3 creative community space with a coffee house vibe. We honor marginalized people's lives through the arts and trauma-informed togetherness.
Rooted in Resilience and Nourished in the Arts, Sacred Grounds Coffee House plants seeds of understanding so that equity and healing may flourish for all.
Our Guiding Principles
Sacred Grounds Coffee House Recognizes that there are many underlying factors for why people may be at higher risk of complex trauma, oppression, and marginalization. These reasons may include race, culture, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomics, disability, and mental health conditions.
We are passionate about matters of diversity, equity, and resilience. We aspire to be aware of and put into practice trauma-informed best practices in all that we do. Sacred Grounds Coffee House is committed to co-creating a volunteer-led, generosity-based creative community space where all people feel authentically welcomed and supported in creative self-expression.
Using the arts as a catalyst for respectful conversation and community action, we plant seeds of understanding so that equity and healing may flourish for all.
All board members will participate in at least 8 hours a year of learning opportunities around topics of diversity, equity, trauma-informed best practices. We will also refer to the federal Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) published guidelines for what it means for an organization to strive to operate from a trauma-informed lens.
Sacred Grounds Coffee House is not a direct service provider. We are an all volunteer, community lead, arts based social justice endeavor. As part of that mission we build ongoing working relationship with other non-profits and professionals committed to celebrating diversity, promoting equity, and building resilience though the arts. To actively help ensure that all participants safe, dignity, and value are upheld we partner with other peace-building organizations and individuals committed to lasting systemic change.
We believe that ongoing learning with one another and actively highlighting opportunities for self-advocate and allies to engage in our local community is an essential piece of creating and sustaining a genuinely equitable arts-based space.
Equity and the Arts Initiatives
All partnering individuals and organizations share common guiding principles based on celebrating diversity, promoting Equity, and building community and individual resilience through the creative arts. We collaborate to creatively share our stories of courage, strength, and endurance, and the surrounding community. In genuine solidarity with one another, we plant seeds of understanding so that Equity and healing may flourish for all.
Artist Gallery Store
Our Sacred Grounds Coffee House artist gallery is a volunteer, Persons with Disabilities (PWD), and ally led endeavor. The Sacred Grounds overall purpose is to provide a public platform for artists, musicians, authors, and peace-building organizations within underrepresented communities. 70% of collaborating artists, authors, and peace building organizations are from the BIPoC, LGBTQ+, and PWD communities.
Proceeds for all art, book and bulk coffee bean sales will go towards basic operational costs (examples: lease support, insurance, free Creative Coffee Time supplies) and workshop facilitator fees and scholarships for facing financial barriers.
