BlendWell is a community development initiative of Community Services League, a nonprofit organization working to make meaningful and lasting change in people's lives.
Launched in 1916 by Bess Truman and friends, Community Services League (CSL) has a long history of helping people through difficult times in their lives. Today's CSL provides a wide range of integrated services to help people not only survive, but thrive. From basic assistance with food, clothing and shelter, to financial and employment coaching, job training, access to affordable loans, scholarships and more. A few years ago, CSL purchased a closed bank building in an underserved neighborhood. We asked neighbors what they would like to see. Resoundingly they said, "a place to gather, collaborate and share." Through the generosity of donors, CSL was able to bring this vision to life. Opened in late July 2018, BlendWell is a coffee cafe and community space that will grow and evolve to meet the needs of our neighbors - and serve as a catalyst for positive change. One cup, one conversation at a time.
