What exactly is Studio164?
Studio164 is a nonprofit organization (501c3) whose mission is to maintain safe, low-cost meeting spaces for addiction recovery groups. We welcome all 12-Step meetings, Dharma Recovery meetings, SMART recovery meetings, and other addiction recovery support groups. Studio164’s space can also be rented for events.
How do I start a meeting or book the space for a special event?
If you are interested in using Studio 164 to start a meeting or book an event, please contact Bobby Hampton by phone (713-927-0478) or email (email@example.com). Be sure to include the dates/times of your meeting/event.
How does paying rent for meetings work?
For recurring recovery-based meetings, 85% of collected donations (typically called 7th tradition) is to be put in a donation envelope (located next to the safe). Fill out and seal the envelope before dropping it into the safe. To do so, you must slide out the small drawer on the top right of the safe. PULL THE DRAWER ALL THE WAY OUT to see the slot. Please don't place envelopes on the underside of the drawer (they will not deposit).
I noticed an error on the website schedule - what should I do?
Send us an email or contact Rachel C. (602-561-7688) so we can fix it. Thanks for keeping us on our toes!
What do I do if something is broken or there's no toilet paper?
If something needs to be restocked or fixed (out of toilet paper, broken locker, vending machine problem, zoom issues, etc.), please send one of us a text so we can address the issue: Casey (602-321-9058), Rachel (602-561-7688), or Bobby (713-927-0478).
What is a board of directors?
The Studio is run by a group of volunteers called The Board of Directors. We get together quarterly to ensure safe operations of the space. If you or someone you know would like to become a member of the board, please email your name, contact information, reason for interest, service resume, and any other pertinent information to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Elections are held every March, but new members can be added throughout the year if there are open positions.
I want to volunteer - who should I call?
