Volunteers are the heart of Recovery Café San Jose. They are a diverse group of people who bring great compassion and truly enjoy working with our members. Volunteers range from young people in their early twenties to “young at heart” people in their eighties. Volunteers come from many walks of life and from many ethnicities making the Café rich in culture and free of discrimination.
