Café Momentum, a restaurant model that helps troubled youth, coming to Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH — Eat. Drink. Change lives.

That’s not just a slogan.

Those words mean action at Café Momentum, a Dallas-based nonprofit restaurant that provides 12-month paid internships to young men and women exiting the juvenile justice system. They rotate through all aspects of the restaurant, focusing on life and social skills, coaching and development.

Soon that momentum will be making its way to Pittsburgh.

The restaurant will be Downtown on Forbes Avenue not far from Market Square, easily accessible via public transportation.
