Located on the 16th floor of the Franklin County Courthouse, Cafe Overlook is a collaborative project from Service! Relief for Hospitality Workers, the Franklin County Board of Commissioners, ARCH, and ECDI.
ARCH provides comprehensive workforce development, coaching, and case management to individuals who are offered employment at Cafe Overlook. The ARCH curriculum provides employees with the tools and resources needed to establish sustainability and build good employee and employer relationships. ARCH supports the leadership at Cafe Overlook in working positively with a demographic that often presents complex social needs. We help ensure a healthy and stable workforce by establishing a pipeline linking employees directly to community resources that address social needs, while identifying other candidates for employment at Cafe Overlook that fit the mission of the organization.
All Cafe employees begin at $15 an hour and after 90 days are eligible for paid time off and health insurance. Free parking while at work and a free bus pass is also provided. In order to receive these benefits, they must adhere to our program guidelines and be working full time (35-40 hours a week) at the Cafe.
