Making a Difference in Local Communities

Check out this video featuring our Cofounder, Killian Noe, which highlights the growing network of Cafés across North America. Then, read stories about some of those Cafés and the impact the Recovery Café Model can have on a local community when we create spaces intentionally focused on recovery.

Being With: The Founding of Recovery Café Indy

“Being with.” Not doing for. Not helping out. Not serving or saving others. Being with is one of the deep roots undergirding Recovery Café Indy’s founding. So is a trip to Nicaragua and a transformative experience with Jesuit priest Fernando Cardenal. So is living and working in Vietnam and a Black Quaker’s years of community organizing in Indianapolis.

Becoming Family: The Founding of Recovery Café Medford

On a rainy evening about a decade ago, Stephanie Mendenhall left her office in a hurry. She needed a gift before heading to a friend’s birthday party.

She stopped outside a TJ Maxx and walked by a teenage boy laying on the sidewalk, crying, his bicycle next to him. On the way in, she thought, “Somebody should help him.” On the way out, she thought, “Maybe I should.” But she ended up passing him by. The experience haunted her for months.

The Founding of Recovery Café Longmont: Open Hearts, Saying Yes

Origin stories are so intriguing and powerful. What about the Recovery Café model inspired the founders; what sparked their passion to launch a Café?

Take a moment to sit down here with some of Recovery Café Longmont’s founders. Learn about their inspirations: from a desire to live out one’s faith, to a son’s struggle with addiction, to words that leapt off the page. It’s a story of a group of open-hearted folks willing to say yes and dig in.

Dove House Recovery Café: A Sanctuary

Dove House Recovery Café, located in the small town of Port Townsend, Washington, opened at noon. Community members gradually arrived, checked in with Maura at the front desk, and began to find their seats at the tables spread through the light-filled space.

At 12:30 Brian, the Café’s Program Manager, convened the 20 or so of us gathered there by asking, “What do you appreciate about this place?” Without hesitation a man at the table next to me answered, “It’s kind of a sanctuary.”

Recovery Café San Jose

“RCSJ is a place to learn how to recover from negative thoughts. A place to be around people that have been through similar situations as you. Teaches people how to show care for one another.” – Anthony J., Member at Recovery Café San Jose
