8% of $20,000 goal
Help the Hamilton County community and our café by assisting us in reaching our goal! Our café is a community center for anyone in recovery, a central hub for resources and collaboration with already established services and a place for willing participants to volunteer their time.
This fundraising campaign has a goal of $20,000 to help support our School for Recovery which offers classes that benefit our members and their experiences while on their recovery journey.
We hope to convey the immense impact your support can provide to the members of this great community. We offer so many programs and possibilities for those who cannot otherwise afford them, and we couldn’t do that without the our community.
There are over 50 other Recovery Café’s in the United States, the following outcomes are typical when the model is utilized. By offering a safe space for people that are justice involved, struggling with substance use, homelessness, mental illness and other co-occurring issues the rate of recidivism and need to use substances as a coping mechanism will naturally decrease. Members will experience an evidence-based model grounded in stabilization, accountability and community. The support offered through the recovery circles, peer recovery coaches, along with other resources will continue to assist members.
Within the first year of the program, we anticipate the following outcomes:
• 70% of our members will report longer periods of sobriety
• 95% will report significant improvement with their mental health and stability
• 75% will report an increase in the development of their recovery capital
• A decrease in the number of visits to the emergency room, first time responder calls and accidental overdoses.
• 100% of members will have increased access to Peer Recovery Support and courses through the School of Recovery
• 80% of participants will report an increase in connectedness to their recovery community which will empower them to stay the course on their recovery journey
• 80% of participants will report an increase of awareness of recovery skills and feel better to utilize those skills throughout their recovery
• 60% of participants will report a decrease in use of/desire to use illicit substances helping them focus on their recovery
• 80% of members will view recovery as desirable
