Johnny’s smiling face has been a regular sight around Soul for the last 3 1/2 years.

What first brought you to Soul Café 3 years ago?

My circumstances changed, I lost my job and found myself in acute financial difficulty.

How were you feeling at that time?

Not great. I was feeling completely overwhelmed by my situation and searching for a little bit of help or support.

I’d say it has a strong sense of community and lots of kind, caring people who work there.

How has Soul Café helped you?

I came to Soul and found a safe place. The volunteers are so friendly and I have made good relationships with the Soul staff. I particularly enjoy the conversations at Soul.

What services at Soul Café are most helpful to you?

The meal services in the café, the open pantry service, haircuts and the counsellor (Mental Health Clinician). The Soul Café Christmas dinner is awesome.

What would you say to people about Soul Café?

I’d say it has a strong sense of community and lots of kind, caring people who work there.
