Recovery Café

In 2017, we launched our first Lemayian (which means “blessed” in Swahili) trip to Kenya to increase awareness about the projects we support there through the foundation.  Now we are bringing the concept back home and offering a series of site visits to Seattle non-profits followed by lunch with the organization’s leadership.

Recovery Cafè was founded in 2003 as a direct response to the critical, unmet need of long-term recovery for people who have suffered trauma, homelessness, addiction and/or other mental health challenges. Recovery Café provides a space to serve those individuals who needed an on-going supportive community in order to stabilize and maintain stability in mental health, relationships, housing and employment. Over the past ten years, it has continued to improve and expand its programming and services to build a holistic, person-centered system of care – backed by evidence-based best practices – that engages individuals for a lifetime of managing their disease and empowers them to build a life that realizes their full potential.

We will tour with Executive Director David Coffey and then have coffee and Q&A in the café itself.  This is a great event for people who are looking to understand more about mental health services, addiction, and homelessness.

Please contact us at for more information or to RSVP. Spots are limited. Tour and coffee will be last approximately one and a half hours.
