Bean's Cafe
Anchorage, AK 99501
Details: The Mission of Bean's Cafe is to feed the hungry and shelter the homeless without discrimination during the day. The underlying premise of Bean's Cafe is a deep belief in the inherent dignity of every person, a belief that people respond with kindness when treated kindly, with trust when trusted, and respectfully when respected. Our aim is not to set up a value system – determining what is right or wrong – or a way of life for persons, but to allow them to form their own. In this situation a person is not pressured into acting in a special way, and their eventual response is free, lasting, and more fully themselves”. Incorporated in February 1979, Bean's Cafe is a stand alone, non-sectarian, 501(c)(3) non-profit agency. We are a community based and supported program. Since 1979, we have maintained a center where the hungry and homeless are provided with hot nutritious meals, a warm and safe day shelter, information and referral assistance to health and human service programs. We target the poorest people in our community, the street people, the homeless, the chronically mentally ill, and the needy elderly. We also serve families in temporary crisis, the seasonally unemployed, and assist various local agencies in the feeding of children. Bean's Cafe exists to provide the most basic of human needs without discrimination or cost to anyone requesting assistance.
