The Soul Tea Mission
Soul Tea was incorporated in 2019. The mission of Soul Tea is to steep our communities in Love, Hope and Opportunity and to transform lives one tea shop at a time. Social empowerment and creating job opportunities for people with disadvantaged backgrounds is at the core of Soul Tea. According to the National Coalition for the Homeless Employment, the greatest barrier for creating and maintaining housing stability is finding meaningful and sustainable employment. Meaningful and sustainable employment, as well as elevating mindsets is the heart of Soul Tea Foundation, Inc., founded in 2020 with the goal of empowering opportunity challenged individuals, which includes those transitioning from homelessness, ex-offenders, human-trafficking survivors, differently abled, veterans and more, through job training and mentorship to ensure they have the tools they need for long-term stability and success.
Our mission is to provide the foundational bridge for opportunity challenged individuals to move beyond merely surviving into a position of thriving. Our Vision is to empower opportunity challenged individuals in our community by elevating them to a mindset of knowing that they are worthy, valued, and loved. We will do this by demonstrating love in action within underserved communities, by providing training and mentorship, while also filling in the gaps where opportunity exists within other organizations.
At Soul Tea we believe that when we love people relentlessly, and those individuals know they are not alone, their world will change for the better.
