Promise Resource Network is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to transform the approach to recovery from mental illness, substance use, and trauma, by focusing on wellness, not illness. Your donation will help us live our mission every day through individualized recovery support, education programs and advocacy, allowing us to change lives and change the way society approaches recovery.
Recovery Cafés are healing recovery communities committed to serving people who have experienced trauma and the results of trauma like houselessness, substance use and mental health challenges, incarceration, trauma, and loneliness. Recovery Cafés embody what it looks like when we live like we belong to each other. We support multiple pathways of recovery, are guided by trauma-informed principles, and recognize long-term recovery requires long-term support and authentic connection.
Recovery Cafés provide a structure for developing healthy relationships and loving accountability that empowers it’s Members (our most closely held participants) to gain and maintain recovery, reduce recurrence of use, and fulfill each individual’s growth potential.
Membership at a Café is FREE and requires accountability to three commitments:
1) To be drug- and alcohol-free for 24 hours before entry;
2) To participate in a weekly Recovery Circle;
3) To contribute to the Café community.
The membership structure is not intended to be a rigid barrier; it is a tool that allows meaningful follow-up conversations when a Member is unable to keep these commitments. This loving accountability, and radical hospitality, are key components and characteristics of all Recovery Cafés.
