Our Mission

The Grind Pembroke is a faith-based, non-denominational and inclusive organization. We are a non-profit, inter-denominational organization that demonstrates the love of Jesus “one cup, one smile, and one bed at a time”. We are more than coffee — we are community.

We strive to be an agent of change in the community through our Coffee House Ministry, Coffee House Outreach, Shelter Services, Client Services Office, Youth Services, and in early 2020 with the launch of a new service – Transitional Housing.


We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors whose members are selected for their demonstrated concerns for community members and for the skill-sets they bring to the efficient functioning of the organization.

We are administered by a volunteer Executive Director who serves as a board member while providing oversight on behalf of the Board. Volunteers carry out a variety of administrative functions including data collection, record keeping, finance, event planning, volunteer recruitment and assisting clients in meeting their needs.
