Our Mission

is to fortify former foster youth with personal and professional skills, employment, and the supportive community needed to lead a sustainable, independent lifestyle.

The Cafe

The Monkey & The Elephant is Philadelphia’s first and only non-profit coffee shop employing former foster youth. By choosing to purchase coffee and baked goods from our shop you are also supporting the former foster youth in our program. Youth that go through the foster care system are at greater risk of experiencing incarceration, homelessness and reliance on public assistance or welfare.

Our Providers

We strive to work closely with Philadelphia-based vendors in order to cultivate a tight sense of community and promote the local economy. We receive our coffee from three different small-batch, Pennsylvania-based roasters who have close partnerships with their farmers and use single origin beans that are ethically-sourced. Our roasts are available in-store, in hot and iced drinks, or you can purchase a bag to take home and make at your own convenience.
