When Madison Chandler started a year long internship with Dry Bones in 2010 the dream resurfaced. She had decided to take on the dream of starting a coffee shop that will employ and train homeless youth seeking to rebuild their lives. As she started efforts she remembered a conversation that she had with Mark Smesrud when they were interns with Dry Bones in the Summer of 2009. Finally, in August of 2011 Madison talked to Mark again about joining the Purple Door Coffee effort and this time Mark committed to moving to Denver in January of 2012.
