To best serve our women and the community, Omega Espresso Bar has partnered with other non-profit organizations and churches in the area. Through these partnerships, we ensure that the women we serve have access to the resources needed to equip them for success.
We would also like to thank the following companies for their generosity and support as we move forward in achieving our God-given dream:
Divine Threads is a local non-profit that serves women from backgrounds of sex-trafficking, incarceration, lack of family support, homelessness, and single parenting. They create opportunities for those looking to re-enter the work force or school, giving them a fresh start.
We partner with Divine Threads by meeting with their clients to refine their résumé writing skills. We also serve as an ongoing resource for their clients. Some find their second chance of employment through Omega Espresso Bar’s paid internship program.
Where would we be without Mark Johnson? Well, we’d be drinking water and not coffee! Mark has perfectly picked every bean to make Omega Blend Coffee. Intent Coffee Roasters is also an internship partner for our interns located on the Eastside of Portland, Oregon USA.
Here’s what Mark has to say about his company: “Intent Coffee Roasting started in 2012 in Portland, Oregon because we believe that coffee can change lives. From a cup of freshly roasted beans brewed perfectly to farmers investing in their crops and workers, coffee can and should do more. We invest 30% of our profits towards community development projects in coffee-growing regions and are currently purchasing water filters that will last a lifetime for families in Nicaragua.”
Lionheart Coffee Company supports those who are working locally and internationally to help them provide food, clean water, shelter, and emergency services. Lionheart highlights that humanitarian work in their coffee shop. They promote volunteer and service opportunities, and they donate a percentage of their profit to these community-minded organizations.
Our partnership with Lionheart Coffee Company is simple: they love people and so do we. They offer a safe environment for our interns and we are forever grateful.
Spark Self-Defense is committed to ending physical, emotional, and verbal abuse. Spark partners with professionals from different backgrounds such as health care, mental health, and other disciplines. They believe self-defense lies in prevention, training, and treatment. The Spark team equips people to stand strong.
Spark proudly partners with Omega Espresso Bar to enable some of our most vulnerable to transition to a safe and stable life. Spark also donates 10% of all profits to Omega Espresso Bar.
In their own voice: “Put simply, Tigard is our home. We have a heart for this city and want to be part of its story. Out of our love for the city and its people we have opened Well & Good to create a great common space where people can connect, study, hold business meetings, or just sit and read while enjoying fantastic coffee and food. Well & Good is a non-profit business that is the result of a community of people and two organizations coming together with a shared vision for the Tigard area. Our hope is to be a place of community and home for the city while achieving two things: to provide great coffee and food in an environment where the generosity of relationship dominates, and to serve this area by providing a relaxed destination while funneling all our profits back into the community through various non-profits that are serving Tigard.”
Omega Espresso Bar is thrilled to be partnering with Well & Good Coffee House, working with their lovely staff and in their restaurant space to provide a safe environment for our interns.
