As a 15 year volunteer, The FireEscape Coffeehouse has made a huge difference in the lives of youth on our small community. Open on weekend nights, we provide a cappuccino bar, soft drinks and snacks at a very reasonable price, have pool, ping pong, carpetball, games, coloring books, open mic nights, concerts (some are free), host youth events and just love on the kids who come in there. We are funded by donations and an annual Share-A-Thon on our radio station, KFEX. We have one full time program director, hired in 2010 and a parttime radio manager. All the rest of us are volunteers as well as donors. We love this place and our reputation for reaching out to the most challenging of foster kids, regular kids, Christian kids or strangers who just come in for coffee- it's an awesome place!
