A non-profit coffee house and grassroots community center in historic Mt Tabor Presbyterian Church
The mission of the TaborSpace Program is to create connected community, by providing a welcoming and nurturing gathering place, as a collaboration between the church and the neighborhood!
In an effort to build community and open up the beautiful, historic building as a resource for the neighborhood, TaborSpace was founded by church members and neighbors of the Mt. Tabor area. After being closed for 40 years, the doors to the original bell tower and entrance into the new coffee house opened on June 23rd 2009 and marked the beginning of what is now becoming a thriving grassroots community center.
What you’ll find here
- Affordable spaces for private and public events
- Large community room and children’s play area
- Serving local Ristretto Roasters coffee and Nuvrei Pastries
- Weekly music events, art classes, yoga, workshops and more!
- Parish House Partners, offices housing holistic healing practices, music lessons, and community non-profits
As part of our Mission, everyone involved at TaborSpace volunteers a little, or a lot! The doors stay open and the organization continues to grow because of the diverse gifts everyone brings to the table. From the baristas to the parish house partners, the advisory team to the event hosts, the volunteers make TaborSpace possible. Please inquire if you want to get involved.
What makes us a Non-Profit? Not only are we primarily volunteer run, everything we offer, from mochas to room rentals, yoga classes to concerts, is by suggested donation and sliding scale. Our intention is to be available to everyone.
Safer Space Statement
A space becomes safer when a community actively commits to creating and sustaining a life-nurturing space for all people.
As a community space, we are shaping a culture that encourages the well-being of all persons from every race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, faith/religion, ability, age, access to resources, and life situation.
We invite every person (staff, volunteer, space user, patron, etc.) in TaborSpace to participate in actively maintaining such a life-affirming environment by considering how their own language and actions affects others around them.
We encourage folks to remember that humans come from different experiences and do things in different ways, and that everyone deserves respect and the dignity of being themselves. We also invite people to approach staff in confidence if there is a situation that causes them to feel unsafe.
We choose to say “Safer” Space rather than “safe space” because we acknowledge that we are in a process of learning, and no space is entirely “safe” for everyone.
Thank you for joining with us in this important work of learning to practice allyship with one another, thereby contributing to the building of a healthy community.
