Since launching Katie's Cup in 2009, the neighborhood around ZION has experienced an incredible transformation. The collaborative atmosphere provided by Katie's Cup helps draw people together in all forms of dialog. Discussion groups, exercise and yoga, poetry readings, and just plain coffee fanatics are drawn to the neighborhood to share in the experience. Who could have known just how much a difference a simple cafe would make?Katie's Cup venues have shown us that investing in people and the neighborhood not only reduces crime but it makes for fertile social soil, perfect for growing a community.
Today, Katie's Cup is a high-energy center that attracts young professionals, children, and a richly diverse group of adults to MidTown with its specialty fair-trade coffees, free WiFi, live music and more. Offering high-tech meeting accommodations, Katie's Cup has also become a gathering place for community events and discussion on important current events - particularly as seen through the lens of faith.
