Our Mission

To provide meaningful employment for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

We believe that there is a place for everyone in the workforce. While we provide employment our goal is to provide job skills and life skills training so that our BEristas are able to find further employment within our community.

We strive to provide a place of acceptance for all people in the community. This cafe will provide a place where everyone can come together to feel purpose, importance, and to realize that we aren’t all that different on the inside.

Our gratitude to Brody’s Be Cafe for sharing this important mission with Kenzie’s Be Cafe and our community.

Creating opportunity for all.               Coffee with a purpose.               Creating opportunity for all.               Coffee with a purpose.               Creating opportunity for all.

A New Purpose For A Historic Building

Kenzie’s Be Cafe operates out of the historic Crescent Theater building located at 1103 Washington Ave., Grand Haven, MI 49417.

The Crescent Theater was built at the corner of Ferry Street and Washington Avenue in 1928 during the end of the silent movie era. It could sit 550 people and included an enclosed “crying room” for parents and their fussy babies. This was the time when live music played by an organist accompanied the movies, and 25 cents could buy you a ticket. The building’s life as a movie theater was short-lived, and by 1939 its doors were closed.
