Samaritan Coffee Roasters Lends A Helping Hand To Men In Need

From: connecticutmag.com

Want to feel extra warm and fuzzy when sipping on that morning cup of coffee? A new roaster in southwestern Connecticut with a charitable mission might have your new brew.

Samaritan Coffee Roasters of the Good Samaritan Mission is a nonprofit focused on serving youth, homeless, and at-risk populations in and around Danbury. In addition to housing 10-15 men on a regular basis, the faith-based mission, under the direction of Mark Grasso, offers a work therapy program that teaches men valuable skills to get back into the labor force. The newest addition to skills-based programs is a small coffee roastery that four to five residents participate in at a time, twice a week.
