Praise Coffee Shop for Solely Hiring Homeless Employees


Target: Owners of Redtail Coffee, Seth and Kelly Kelley

Goal: Thank coffee shop owners for their program to hire only homeless employees

Seth and Kelly Kelley, owners of Redtail Coffee in Fort Collins, Colorado are helping the homeless by implementing a policy to hire them only. This couple should be thanked for their humanitarian efforts to help the homeless establish successful careers and lives.

The coffee shop is open for applying to anybody living in a facility called Redtail Ponds, which is a newly built housing project for homeless and low-income families. The partnership between the housing program and the coffee shop is an effective way to help homeless or low-income people get on their feet and begin successful futures.

Seth and Kelley say they are hiring only homeless to overturn stereotypes and give their business a purpose. They say “When people come through our shop and have a positive experience, we can challenge those stereotypes… We also want to show that a for-profit can serve a social purpose.” This program is truly positive and inspiring, and should be used as an example for other businesses.

Please sign the petition below to that Seth and Kelly Kelley for their charity in hiring homeless people in their coffee shop.


Dear Seth and Kelly Kelley,

Your coffee shop Redtail Coffee is making tremendous and honorable efforts to assist homeless and low-income people by making your employment opportunities open only to them. We are writing to praise you for this noble program.

Your coffee shop and the local Redtail Ponds housing together create a great opportunity for homeless or low-income people to establish themselves and create a better life. Many business people would not be as open to hiring these types of people, and we think that it is great that you are doing it to overturn the stereotypes about low-income or financially struggling people.

With any luck, your generous business policy will receive much publicity and be influential to other businesses, inspiring them to make similar charitable actions. Thank you again for all that you are doing with your business, and we encourage you to continue with this and other positive initiatives in the future.
