Café 54, a program of Coyote TaskForce, is a unique employment-training program for adults recovering from mental illnesses.  Café trainees receive on-the-job training as cooks, pastry chefs, cashiers, and dishwashers.  With the opportunities provided by Café 54, the trainees are on their way to independent employment in the community.

At Café 54 our mission is fourfold:

  • Assisting individuals with mental illnesses to become independent, tax-paying citizens
  • Providing the restaurant community with reliable employees who have had training and first-hand experience
  • Providing trainees with the tools they need to express their inherent talents and skills
  • Reducing the stigma surrounding mental illnesses by shifting focus from disabilities to abilities
