One coffee shop in New York is serving both cappuccinos and community. Father Jim O’Shea and Efrain Hernandez started a project called Reconnect as a way to get kids out of gangs and off the street. They run a café, a bakery and a graphic design company that employ a couple dozen young men. 85% of them go on to keep legitimate jobs and stay out of jail – a dramatically low recidivism rate.
