Partner Spotlight: The Nest

Partner Spotlight: The Nest

  • OWL360, a non-profit based in Port Townsend, recently opened The Nest, a community coffee house open to all people with a focus on supporting young people ages 14-25.
  • The Nest’s mission is to provide young people access to resources, support services, activities, and opportunities to build community connections.
  • Resource Navigators help with: finding scholarships, reproductive health access, career counseling, housing, mental health resources, and more.
  • The coffee companions who work at the coffee shop are trained in peer support.
  • There is a “pay-it-forward” system so any young person needing a drink or food can access that at any time, no questions asked. Anyone who wants to contribute to the pay-it-forward fund can make a donation at the coffee counter.
  • The Nest has regular events and activities such as youth open mic, karaoke, book clubs, art activities, clothing swaps, gaming, Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) and much more.
