About Our Auction
Bailey's Cafe is a vital part of Central Brooklyn. We need to keep growing, engaging and building community through the arts and inter-generational connections. Our annual silent auction is another way for our donors, new and old, to support Bailey's and bid on an experience or an item that will bring them joy as well as the knowledge that they are supporting our important work.
About Bailey's Cafe
Bailey's Cafe is a Brooklyn-based non-profit, connecting generations to make a better world. Named after a novel by Goria Naylor, Bailey’s Café is a space of community healing and belonging -- a secular church, a home, a kitchen table. Bailey’s welcomes all with an open heart, compassion and love, generating a culture of belongingness, non-judgment, acceptance, community, and space to be your full self. This is Bailey’s unique value.
Bailey’s Café creates an environment for
youth to come together and grow through creativity, imagination, and communion
elders and youth come together to communicate, share and learn
the “rough around the edges” be welcomed in a nonjudgmental space
deep personal connections
exposure to new things such as radical self-wellness, different forms of arts
continuation of culture in the neighborhood
investigation and challenging of gentrification
safe space to connect and belong across their differences
a home with a welcoming energy
a responsive space that is doing what the community needs at the moment
a space that loves communities it serves
The organization’s story is not about numbers, nor particular programs (these are just vehicles). It is a story of community-driven call and response and impacts.
