Local Coffee Shop Says "Buy a Latte, Save a Life"

A new coffee shop is in town, and there, if you buy a latte, you help save a life.

That's the motto of The Meeting Grounds.

It's a coffeehouse in a newly converted church in Terre Haute.

The business is part of the Next Step Foundation, a non-profit recovery community for women.

Those who are recovering work at The Meeting Grounds, and the money the shop brings in helps support the group's mission.

"It's hard, hard work but that's the rewarding part. When you see them transform and physically, literally change in front of your very eyes. See them become self confident, be able to look at a member of the community and feel worthy. It's powerful," said Dana Simons, executive director of the Next Step Foundation.

The Foundation is teaming up with the organization Free the Girls to raise awareness about human trafficking.

There's a fundraiser next Tuesday, July 9 at 7 p.m.

You're asked to bring a gently used bra and a dollar to help ship them overseas to women in need.

The Meeting Grounds is located at 6th and Washington Avenue in Terre Haute.

The number there is (812) 917-5006.
