Maggie’s Be Cafe

Maggie’s Be Cafe, located in Hudsonville, MI, is a coffee shop that employs approximately 23 individuals with a spectrum of disabilities. The vision of the cafe was to provide a place in the community where individuals with disabilities could have a sense of purpose, accomplishment, and connectedness through employment. The café is also staffed with employees who serve as mentors to the baristas and facilitators in operating the facility. The café which opened in June of 2021, has been a great success and has been a win/win for the community as well as for the staff and employees. The Robert Nelson Foundation is proud to support the vision of Maggie’s Be café with a gift of $5,000 to assist with their vision of expansion and continued development.
