SafeNest Coffee is more than just a coffee brand; it's a beacon of hope and a path to freedom for those who have survived domestic and sexual violence.

Our Story 

In June 2022, SafeNest Coffee was born out of a deep desire to help survivors of domestic violence break the cycle of abuse and regain their independence. 

It all started when SafeNest CEO, Liz Ortenburger, recognized that one of the biggest barriers to leaving an abusive relationship is a lack of financial resources. That's why she created SafeNest Coffee, a work development program that provides survivors with the skills and resources they need to become financially independent.

How our SafeNest Coffee program works

We prepare survivors for gainful employment by offering interview preparation, resume building, and job skills training. We also offer sales, marketing, shipping, fulfillment, and customer service opportunities. Our goal is to help survivors build confidence and gain transferable skills that they can use to secure employment once they leave our shelter. 

Through our program, survivors receive the chance to earn a paycheck and gain valuable workplace skills.
