Faces of Recovery: Alicia and Raman

“Faces of Recovery” is an ongoing project with members of Recovery Cafe, San Jose.  

Meet Don Martin, 6 years in recovery. A man who loves people dreams big and looks ahead.


This is Claudia Puentes. At 26, she decided she didn’t want to die (like many of her friends around her). She’s now been in recovery for 20 years. Her dream is to get back a job she lost with Downtown Teams, helping the homeless.

You can read every story recorded so far here. You can read more about and support the amazing work of Recovery Cafe San Jose here.
