Campaign Overview

Help us bring a coffee shop like Kansas City's never seen! * Gourmet coffee * Art * Community * On-the-Job training to youth with and without disabilities

Who are we?  A Cup on the Hill is a non-profit organization designed to help youth 16-25 years old, with and without disabilities, gain access to the workforce by providing volunteerism, on-the-job training with paid employment, responsibility education, and connections to the surrounding Metro area.  Employees will go through a 6-12 month program depending on their capabilities and ambitions before job placement.  For more information on our program, please go to or email us at

How will the cafe work?  We will work with local farmers markets to get the freshest ingredients for our food, a local family owned KCK roaster for our gourmet coffee, and use several methods of brewing for our customers to choose from, including:

  - Cold slow drip

  - Espresso

  - Pressed

  - Drip

  - Ibrik or Turkish for the cultural experience of our area 

How can you help?  A Cup on the Hill has established a business plan and financial projections, held two board meetings, and has developed a flexible work training program.
