Please Meet NBIF’s Friend David Listowski (Café Plus Syracuse, NY)

Cafe Plus opened in 1996 as a place for head-injured survivors in the Central New York area to relax, do some meaningful activities, and have a good time with others. Too often, survivors feel isolated and left out of society after being seriously injured in car wrecks, falls, industrial accidents, sports mishaps, or assaults, then spending months or even years in recovery. As a result, many head-injured survivors experience a loss of identity and lowered self-esteem.

The purpose of this coffee shop is to help people combat feelings of isolation and assist them in re-connecting socially and make friendships. The people in the Central New York area have responded with over 5000 visitors and about 15 to 20 or so people coming each week.
