The Mill Lane Link community café will also offer people the chance to talk through any community issues with representatives from Bromford and the council, free access to the internet, and help with job searches.
Julie Walker, head of neighbourhoods for Bromford Living in Staffordshire, urged customers and other community members to make the most of the fortnightly sessions, which start on Wednesday June 22.
She said: "We are fully behind new ventures like this because they help people to sort out housing-related, financial and other problems and improve their chances of gaining skills and employment. As one of the leading providers of affordable housing in Staffordshire, we want to build and maintain the kind of thriving communities where people are really happy to live."
Councillor Colin Greatorex, Lichfield council's cabinet member for community, said: "We wanted to give people from Mile Oak, Fazeley and the surrounding area, a place to meet up and to get help and advice in an informal setting. We hope lots of people take advantage of the community café and will find it a useful resource."
The café is open every other Wednesday from 10am to noon. There are further sessions on July 6 and 20; August 3, 17 and 31; and September 14.
