Music venue and cafe with a desire to create meaningful employment for adults with disabilities.
Stop in during the day for coffee, tea or a smoothie in our New Avenue Café. Relax on our overstuffed leather couches. Bring your computer and connect to our FREE Wifi. Meet up with friends and business associates. We have a Book Club, Storytime for children, and BYOB concerts at night. And more on the way. Join us! In addition to being a venue to see music and other cultural events, the Kelly Center houses the New Avenue Café. The motivation for New Avenue Café stems from a desire to create meaningful employment for adults with disabilities. The Cafe is a project of New Avenue Foundation, a nonprofit organization begun by two fathers of adult daughters with disabilities, Jim Wurster and Tom Reinke. These dads wanted to expand the social and employment opportunities for their daughters as well as others and to ensure that all members of their local communities would feel welcome and valued. Their goal is to enrich the community and the lives of our employees, providing them the opportunity to showcase their abilities and value as individuals..
