It's more than a cup of coffee

Changing the way people include love respect see value accept other people.

              Maggie’s Be Cafe is a proud sponsor of the STEP UP Walk fundraiser through Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan this year! 

Our mission as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit is to employ individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, serving coffee with a purpose.

Maggie’s Be Cafe is more than just another cup of coffee. It is acceptance, it is love, it is change, and it is embracing the abilities of an incredible group of human beings. We are built upon the foundation of inclusivity, kindness, and opportunity. Our mission is to offer employment to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in a positive and uplifting environment. We curate a workplace environment that bridges the gap between individuals with disabilities and those without, because we are more alike than we are different. As a 501(c)(3), we strive to give our “be-ristas” an opportunity to understand and embrace their value, talents, and importance. It is coffee with a purpose.

We are open!

Volunteers Needed!

We have been so lucky to have had many members of our community ask us how they could volunteer their time to help us at Maggie’s Be Cafe! 

As of right now, we are just in need of 3 volunteers (each only needing to commit less than an hour of their time each week) to pick up our Chick-Fil-A goodies in Kentwood and drive them back to the cafe so that we can serve them to our amazing customers! 

Please contact if you are interested and able.
