Join the Fight

No one makes history alone.

We need people like you to put their heads, hearts and expertise into the fight against human trafficking.

Ready to make a difference? We’re so excited that you’d like to be a part of the mission. There are plenty of ways to get involved in the movement through A 2nd Cup.


Fundraising

We came sprinting out of the gates on October 17, 2015, when we finally opened our full-time shop. As a fledgling shop, we work towards total self sufficiency plus the ability to share our profits with other organizations providing aftercare to survivors of human trafficking. As we work towards that goal, we will still be fundraising to continue providing awareness opportunities for Houstonians to become educated about this issue in our city and begin providing in-house aftercare for survivors.

  • Spread the word to family and friends you think would want to partner with us.
  • Give us your best ideas, and volunteer your time for future fundraising efforts.
  • Partner with us financially (contributions are tax-deductible as we are a 501c3 non-profit organization) Donate today!

Volunteering with Us

We staff our shop and our mobile pop-up coffee shop with a combination of paid employees and volunteers. We also need volunteers from time to time with projects and are always looking to expand our volunteer base. We also continue to do mobile events like farmers markets and pop-up shops, serving coffee and raising awareness. 

  • Take orders, make drinks, wash dishes, bus tables and educate customers about human trafficking in a weekly or bi-weekly volunteer shift.
  • Man our mobile coffee shop at our many events and farmers markets to continue to educate the community about human trafficking.
  • Use your handy-person skills to help us with minor plumbing, electrical, construction jobs as those needs arise. 
  • Channel your love for data entry to help us maintain our bookkeeping.
  • Tell us what your skills are and how you think they can benefit the cause or sign up for our mailing list so you'll know when we're looking for volunteers!
  • Volunteer orientations are the second Sunday of each month from 4:00-5:00pm. Email volunteer@a2ndcup.com for more information about how you can volunteer!
