Our MASH-certified home promotes independent living in a structured family environment.

Our structured environment includes, but is not exclusive to the following:

  • Pay weekly fees on time

  • 1 weekly bible discussion (optional)

  • 1 weekly house meeting

  • 3 weekly self-help groups/support groups or daily if not working full time

  • 2 weekly AOD compliance testing, as well as random tests and breathalyzing

  • 1 monthly life skills night - guest speakers to teach or reintroduce a skill

If a woman is unable to work, she will need to volunteer (according to her abilities), be attending school, participate in a program, or do an agreed-upon productive activity. This is to encourage women to be active  and productive in their recovery. 

Each member is responsible to keep the bedroom neat and clean, clean up after herself, and complete house chores.

Each recovery plan will be tailored to the individual woman’s needs.  

The recovery plan encourages accountability and direction.

Assistance with life skills reinforces positive change.

House standards are to ensure the safety and cohesive behaviors of everyone in the house.

We provide women with peer-to-peer support to assist in areas such as education, the guidance of personal finances, resume writing, job search, and physical and mental health options. ​​

Recovery/wellness coaching

Recovery/Wellness Coaches assist participants in navigating recovery support systems and accessing resources. We support participants as they build recovery capital.  Coaches encourage individuals to build on their strengths and to focus on solutions.  Our person centered, strength-based approach assists participants in reaching their goals by finding solutions that influence positive thoughts and healthy attitudes to influence healthy behaviors.  Positive changes happen by increasing understanding of self, learning to apply tools, and taking ownership of our health and wellness.
