OUR LEGACY IS DETERMINED BY HOW WE INVEST IN THE NEXT GENERATION.
Happy Crews campaign to destigmatize mental health issues by creating community, sharing the message, “YOU MATTER, YOU BELONG” Join us to launch Kākou Coffee, a place where teens will find community, acceptance, hope, and strength
Kākou is the Hawaiian value of inclusiveness. It means “all of us” and “we are in this together.” Kākou is very unifying when applied to language, and all are taught to learn, speak, and practice “the language of we”
Depression, anxiety, stress, sadness and suicidal thoughts are realities many teenagers face, every single day.
Kakou coffee will be a place where teens can gather for community, conversation, coffee, juice, music, and art, be welcomed as they are, and encouraged in who they want to become. All are welcome, everyone matters, everyone belongs. Kakou will also be a place where parents find resources including education on how to talk to teens about mental health issues, improve communication, and find parenting support.
We are seeking sponsors to open Kakou Coffee in April 2019. Our proposed location is near Holly and County Line Road in Centennial Colorado, central to 11,000 teenagers.
We believe that it is prudent to have the build out and Furniture Fixtures and Equipment costs of $ 200,000 and the first year operations of $ 310,000 prior to signing the lease. We are seeking in-kind donations as well as sponsorships to reach our goal of $510,000.
