WHO WE ARE
Café 54, a program of Coyote TaskForce, is a unique employment-training program for adults recovering from mental illnesses.  Café trainees receive on-the-job training as cooks, pastry chefs, cashiers, and dishwashers.  With the opportunities provided by Café 54, the trainees are on their way to independent employment in the community.

At Café 54 our mission is fourfold:

Assisting individuals with mental illnesses to become independent, tax-paying citizens
Providing the restaurant community with reliable employees who have had training and first-hand experience
Providing trainees with the tools they need to express their inherent talents and skills
Reducing the stigma surrounding mental illnesses by shifting focus from disabilities to abilities

OUR HISTORY
Coyote TaskForce (CTF) is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to provide high quality employment services, public awareness, and advocacy for adults living with serious mental illnesses, in the belief that work is an integral part of recovery and well-being.

CTF was established by a group of Clubhouse members, mental health workers, families, and advocates as a consumer-run business and was awarded the contract to run Our Place Clubhouse in November 1992.  For over twenty years, Coyote TaskForce has been under the direction of Mindy Bernstein, who holds over 30 years of clinical and administrative experience working with adults with disabilities.

CTF opened Café 54 in 2004, a revolutionary restaurant that simultaneously dismantles the stigma of mental illness while providing hands-on work training and job development for adults in mental health recovery, as well as delicious, fresh cuisine and catering.

CTF is a proud owner of its own building and facilities, a unique, dignified, and professional space designed by members and staff. Our Place Clubhouse and Café 54 are conveniently located downtown, near the Ronstadt Transit Center.
