Hands Across the Falls – 2019

Our 3rd annual event takes place on September 28, 2019

Join us to celebrate recovery efforts in our area.  We’ll gather at the north end of the Monroe Street Bridge just before noon and line the east side of the bridge with a show of public support for the recovery community.  At noon we’ll honor those who have lost battles with addiction with five minutes of silence.

Immediately following, please visit our information and resource fair on Summit Parkway on the northeast corner of the bridge.

All are invited.  If you are in recovery, have a friend or family member who is struggling or are a community member who supports recovery efforts, please join us.

The Recovery Cafe Model

In 2015, Community-Minded Enterprises launched Access to Recovery (ATR) providing free and low cost assistance to men and women recovering from drug and alcohol addiction in Spokane.

In 2017, Recovery Café Spokane opened its doors in Peaceful Valley, offering people in recovery a place to drop in and get support  – whether that is a meal, a friendly ear to listen to, job training or a life enriching class.

Statistics taken from the Life in Recovery Survey, conducted by Alexandre Laudet, P.h.D. in collaboration with Faces & Voices of Recovery.
