Meet The Portico
The Portico Cafe is a social enterprise that supports the Portico – a hub for conversation, connection, and community change. The Portico was created by Hyde Park United Methodist Church to train and employ people transitioning out of other non-profit services. That employment gets them ready to move toward independence. The Portico gives people an opportunity not only to be employed and empowered, but to join in and be part of a larger community.
