A collaborative approach to capacity building

Faces & Voices of Recovery is pleased to collaborate with the Florida Department of Children and Families, Florida Alcohol and Drug Abuse Association (FADAA), and the Peer Support Coalition of Florida to build the capacity of Recovery Community Organizations (RCOs) through training and technical assistance.

Technical assistance is available for individuals and organizations seeking to start Recovery Community Organizations.

Virtual RCO mentorship

A mentor is an experienced Recovery Community Organization (RCO) leader who can provide guidance for the mentee’s organizational path. He/she is also available to the mentee to provide support with four professional coaching sessions per month.  Mentors may also assist mentees with other networking opportunities relevant to their professional careers. The mentor may provide technical assistance in many general ways, but the following is a focused list of technical assistance topics on which the mentor/mentee relationship may provide insight:

 

  • Mission & Vision Statements
  • Strategic Planning
  • Governance
  • Grassroots Advocacy and Community Organizing
