An Audacious Purpose
It’s more than a cafe. It’s coffee with a cause.
A 2nd Cup was established in 2012 to raise awareness of human trafficking issues in Houston—and to develop resources that help create a second chance for survivors.
Create a space for awareness, conversation, and empowerment.
Come in for great coffee and leave with a sense of purpose. We have served and educated over 78,000 Houstonians and have held over 360 human trafficking awareness events since 2015.
Collaborate with allies and strengthen their numbers.
The problem of human trafficking is too pervasive to tackle alone. We love being the hub of action in Houston. We’ve spent hundreds of hours working alongside our allies to engage the public to take action.
Invest in short- and long-term survivor aftercare programs.
We’ve given over $97,000 in financial and in-kind donations to our allies serving survivors and recently began training survivors in the culinary industry through our new program, Brazen Table.
This work cannot be done alone – it takes partnerships and collaboration with anti-trafficking allies.
