Founded in 1998, in its formative months the Café of Life offered coffee to its clients. From this humble beginning the Café of Life has become a fixture in Bonita Springs, serving luncheon meals Monday thru Friday to individuals and families from all walks of life.
Our purpose today is to assist in meeting the basic needs of the less fortunate people of Bonita Springs, Florida, providing nutritional and supplemental assistance while preserving the dignity of the client.
Although Christian based in our formation and continuing objective of caring, sharing and serving to those less fortunate, we are not affiliated with any church denomination or political organization. We are an agency of the United Way of Lee County.
We are governed by a Board of Directors represented by community leaders, clergy, retired professionals, and civic-minded individuals. Directors serve without compensation.
Currently the Café of Life has two part-time employees who report to the Board of Directors. Our Site Manager/Volunteer Coordinator works closely with our clients and schedules all our volunteers. Our Administrator manages the daily operations of our business office.
