Greenwood Café Serves Coffee With a Side of Marriage Counseling
Greenwood’s Coffeehouse Five is all about serving a good cup of Joe and keeping families together.
According to the Indy Star, the food and drinks sold at the café help pay for Christian counseling services that aim to keep couples together and help those struggling to overcome addiction.
“The No. 1 obstacle to people getting help is cost,” Brian Peters, who opened the coffeehouse at 323 Market Plaza this summer with his wife Michelle, told the Indy Star. “We’re trying to make it easy for people to get help and get it early before things get to a point where they’re irreversible.”
The café used to be located inside The Gathering Place at the Community Church of Greenwood, but the church needed the space back and the Peters moved their shop to the heart of downtown Greenwood, the paper said.
The Peters said they came close to divorcing about 18 years ago and were able to mend their relationship through counseling. They wanted to be able to give others the same opportunity to get help before it was too late, they told the Indy Star. The Peters are now coming up on their 30th wedding anniversary.
