School for Recovery provides members the opportunity to address their challenges in a loving, supportive environment and be recognized for committing to the program. This week’s School for Recovery Awards celebration was especially meaningful.
Join us Saturday, September 9, for a book reading and conversation about immigration with author Gabriel Thompson. He will be discussing his new book, Chasing the Harvest – book sales will benefit RCSJ.

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.
