The Inspiration Cafe is a Homeless Project from Chicago that could help thousands if it was taken Nationwide...

Inspiration Cafe, a Project that is helping Homeless in Chicago and should be implemented in many parts of the Country, and would help the Recession Refugees.

Lisa Nigro is the founder of Inspiration Cafe, and other restaurants that serve the Chicago homeless population with dignity and respect, as well as Inspiration Corporation which provides job training, housing and fellowship to its customers.
The :60 film was directed by Oscar winner Helen Hunt and aired during the 2009 Academy Awards. Here is more about it, and also more is linked to the title.

I really want to work on a project like this here in Cleveland....there is a need. When I lived downtown I used to make sandwichs and freeze water bottles and got take them around....but the Radio Flyer idea is amazing....and the idea of a resturante, or even a soup place for coffee and tea and soup would really warm some souls...I would also like to make up packets of toiletries...there are so many empty buildings here...on the Bus Routes...If I get the job at the Free Clinic....I am going to work on this project.....We need to think of a way to take Lisa Nigro's idea nationwide....it's needed...

I work at a cafe for the homeless when I'm in the Midwest. Yeah, it is cool. Ours isn't as upscale as Inspiration Cafe, but it is a great idea to use a cafe model rather than a soup kitchen model.

I just like the idea of food and coffee being offered and that it offers more than food - problemsolving etc....

so many empty building and churchs downtown- I can not help but ponder it...
