It has been a busy year for Recovery Café Spokane. In September, the Café hosted its first annual Hand Across the Falls event and was the recipient of a makeover courtesy of KXLY’s Extreme Team.
Now, more exciting news to share. The Café was awarded a grant worth up to $50,000 from the Seattle based Recovery Café Network.
“We are honored to be chosen, and are grateful to the Recovery Café Network for its support of our work” said Georgia Butler, Recovery Community Services Director. “This year has truly been one of blessings for the Café.”
The money is earmarked for general operating expenses. It can also be used for fundraising, with an added incentive that allows the Café to receive additional funding. For every dollar raised, the Recovery Café Network will match it, up to $10,000. If you’d like to make a donation to Recovery Café Spokane, you can do so using PayPal by clicking here. Recovery Café Spokane is part of Community-Minded Enterprises, a 501c nonprofit.
Recovery Café Spokane currently has 64 members. Membership is open to anyone. Members must be 24-hours alcohol and drug free, attend a weekly Recovery Circle and help at the Café or support a member.
Lunch is provided free of charge to members on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. New member orientations are held the first and third Fridays of the month at 10:30am.
Learn fun, inclusive, developmentally appropriate physical activities to do with young children ages 18 months to five years of age. Training will focus on the connection between physical activity and learning as well as the Early Achievers assessment tools CLASS and ERS. View videos of young children doing these physical activities and try several yourself. These physical activities require only readily available inexpensive equipment, work well in small spaces, and can be done in family- and center-based child care programs. The simple-to-lead activities help children get the practice they need for proper fundamental movement skill development and are easily incorporated into the busy child care day.
STARS Hours are available for the FREE training.
This is an interactive, hands-on experience. Dress in your play clothes.
Please note, there are two identical sessions, 9am and 1pm. Register for just one.
Funding for this training and materials are provided by the Washington Department of Early Learning.
