About Cafe 54
Café 54 & Truck 54 both offer paid pre-employment training opportunities for adults recovering from mental illness in a safe work environment. Training at Café 54 gives members the opportunity to regain transferable job skills & confidence necessary for competitive employment. Enrolled members have immediate access to job development, and Employment Specialists begin career exploration with trainees within the first 30 days.

Our developers assist with finding community employment in the form of supported and competitive employment as well as assisting interested individuals in returning to school to pursue educational goals.
