From the very beginning Recovery Café has been honored to partner with a wide array of individuals and service providers to build support and access to resources for our Members.
For providers who would like to learn more about our services the best option is to attend a coffee hour. The coffee hour is intended for potential volunteers, donors, or partner organizations, not for potential Members.
For Case Managers who are seeking to enroll their customers in Recovery Café’s Membership, there are a few important things to keep in mind. A person needs to be capable of giving and receiving verbal information to qualify for Membership. If a person’s mental illness is more acute than that, Recovery Café is not properly equipped to serve the person and we suggest you contact the Downtown Emergency Service Center.
The best way to learn about Recovery Café and take the first step toward Membership is to come to the Café (ideally between 12 and 4pm) Tuesday through Saturday and be our guest for the day. Case Managers and family members are welcome to accompany prospective Members.
If a person decides during their “guest” day that they would like to become a Member, they can sign up for New Member Orientation at that time. The only way a person becomes a Member is to attend a New Member Orientation. The person must sign up in person here at Recovery Café. Case Managers cannot sign another up for New Member Orientation. Case Managers may accompany her/his customer to the Orientation if desired.
Recovery Café’s community is enriched by the principle that everyone here wants to be here. Therefore, we ask various programs (such as Drug Court) not to mandate attendance at Recovery Café. We encourage you to refer people but ask that you not make Recovery Café a requirement.
Recovery Café currently has a contract to provide Recovery Circle support with Aloha Inn and Farestart. If this is something you would like to have provided at your housing or program location please contact our Director of Finance and Administration Skye Stuart.
Sharing What Services You Offer
We are always delighted to have one of our partners share their gifts, such as legal services, employment, and so on. We have found that a five-minute presentation to the community during lunch (at 12:45pm) is an effective way to reach our Members. If you would like to do this please contact us with your proposal.
Community Service Hours
Recovery Café is a place for people who need to complete community service hours. For more information, contact Jason Fitzgerald.
Currently Recovery Café does not provide drug and alcohol assessments, case management, treatment, or housing.
