Event description

Description

Recovery Café San Jose is a healing community for those traumatized by addiction, homelessness, and mental health challenges. Located in the heart of downtown San Jose, RCSJ is a place where anyone seeking recovery can come for meals, support groups, classes in life and job skills, connections to community resources, and social activities in a safe, sober, and supportive environment.

This free annual breakfast is our largest event of the year, as well as our major fundraiser.

Among the highlights of last year's breakfast were:

  • A performance from our Closing the Gap Chorus
  • Presentation of the Bridge Builder Award to Mike Blach
  • Updates from Founder Dana Bainbridge and Executive Director Ken Goldstein
  • Members sharing their experience of the Café

If you attended last year's breakfast, you heard Hollie and John talk about what Café membership means to them (including John's original song). Today, John is a peer leader at the Café, facilitating a Recovery Circle, and Hollie is a Chef in our remodeled kitchen!

You won't want to miss this year's member speakers, or Bridge Builder awardee, as well as updates on the Café's continued growth and success.

While there is no charge for the breakfast, we will be asking all who attend to make a donation.

If you cannot attend, but would like to support Recovery Café San Jose, please click here to donate.
