About Bailey’s Café
Bailey’s Café is a space of community healing and belonging — a secular church, a home, a kitchen table. Bailey’s welcomes all with an open heart, compassion and love, generating a culture of belongingness, non-judgment, acceptance, community, and space to be your full self. This is Bailey’s unique value.
November 25, 2023
With heavy hearts we acknowledge the passing of long time Bailey’s Family member and patron Mary Lou Shafer on November 25, 2023. A joyful loving generous spirit. We will miss you, Mary Lou.
The Shafer’s love music, especially the Blues and Jazz, every fall for the past eight years, we were able to fill their home with live music when they hosted our Intimate Fundraiser Salon. The photo, of members of the Bailey’s family, including the Shafer’s, is from the 2023 Salon celebrating the end of another great evening.
Bailey’s Cafe is 20!

Testimonials from the Bailey’s Community
I did not know anything about theater and the arts until I met Ms. Kymbali. Now I have picked up some of her attributes and I am able to lead the group in warm ups and other theater games. Bailey’s Café is more than an arts program in that it helps you further your growth emotionally, spiritually, and every way.
"Now I am more connected and more decisive. I want to be strong and have my voice heard, to be more articulate and stand up for myself."
"This is my second time being with this group and I never expected i would have been doing what I was doing – thought I would just come and observe-here i am acting. It is like therapy, like group therapy it fits in there somewhere. It is a great opportunity to work with young people."
"We are pushing to meet somewhere in the middle (youth and elders) so we can just become one community…we have drifted as a people…we are pushing for something better in the community"
