Recovery Café Receives Grant


The Fulton County Community Foundation granted $1,000 to Recovery Café, a local organization focused on providing support and resources for individuals in addiction recovery. Recovery Café programming includes weekly recovery circles and small groups, social events, free meals, life-skills training, and a mental health specialist staff member. These funds will support a coding program aimed at teaching café members how to develop computer programs and apps.

“We are proud to begin a six-month pilot program teaching a small group of women how to code, make their own apps or games, and [have] the ability to work from home or in other careers,” said August Cox, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Executive Director of Therapeutic Services at Recovery Café.

Grants like this one are made possible through Fulton County Community Funds, which currently have a $2:$1 donation matching initiative. These funds are endowed, ensuring their enduring positive influence on Fulton County for generations to come.

Other examples of projects and organizations that have received community fund grants include the Rochester Splash Pad, Lucas Devices for fire departments, new dugouts and fencing for local ball diamonds, the Kewanna Food Pantry, and so many more.
