“Coming to olives lane for my morning coffee is the highlight of my day! There is a such a sense of community and support, and I feel like I am part of the family. This was particularly helpful during the long lockdowns. And knowing that the funds are being injected into youth programs and employment just adds to that sense of community. I love meeting the young people training through the cafe and have very quickly formed some lifelong friendships. Not to mention the coffee is great! Olive’s lane is a safe haven and refuge, and I know this view is shared among those others who religiously go there for their morning coffee.” – Sarah & Arlo.
