The Lucky Duck Foundation, with support from the Rolf Benirschke Legacy Foundation, is pleased to announce a brand new pizzeria and print shop called “Timmy’s Place” which trains and employs homeless youth at Urban Street Angels’ youth homeless center. The nonprofit social enterprise is expected to employ more than fifty youth per year.
It is named “Timmy’s Place” after Mary & Rolf Benirschke’s son, Timmy, who overcame homelessness and addiction after living on the streets for more than five years.
Timmy’s Place is open to the public and serves pizzas, sandwiches, pastries, coffees, and more, and also provides catering. The print shop has a high-capacity automated screen printing machine that can produce thousands of units as well as equipment to handle customizable products. Additionally, merchandise featuring designs, logos, and creations made by homeless youth will be displayed and sold.
Timmy’s Place is projected to be a self-sustaining endeavor after one year. To cover operating costs during the first year, the Lucky Duck Foundation is inviting the public to “fund a shift” for homeless youth. A donation of $100 will cover one four-hour shift for youth at Timmy’s Place and others like it.
