The stereotypes that come with drug and alcohol abuse often overshadow the humanity of the people who suffer from it. The fact is, people struggling with drugs and alcohol are everyday people – moms and dads, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters – who have lost control of their lives through a series of poor decisions and unhealthy habits, often acquired in very small, almost imperceptible steps taken over a period of years. Most want to regain control of their lives, but lack the support and know-how needed to do so.
With the development of Clean House Inc.; we are creating a safe and sober living environment where good behaviors are taking root. Our facility is a zero-tolerance sober living residence for men looking to live a drug and alcohol free life. Our overarching goal is to empower our clients to leave Clean House sober with a strong sense of self-esteem and personal responsibility, and the ability to support themselves emotionally, spiritually and financially. 12-step recovery is the foundation of our program which also includes career development and stress /anger and time management by the practice of meditation and martial arts.
We received ownership of our facility in 2013. All windows, most doors, 4 furnaces, 3 hot water tanks, 2 toilets, 3 kitchen sinks, cupboards and cabinets had been stolen. Also, all of the wiring complete with meters had been taken as well. Since 2013 we have worked extremely hard with the assistance of volunteers, fundraisers and donations to rebuild our facility from the ground up. We were able to install all new windows, 1 toilet and sink, 2 furnaces, 1 hot water heater, 2 security doors, and have the majority of our building rewired for electricity. We currently have 1 resident. The first floor rear apartment is unheated and requires 1 furnace.
Step 1: Secure qualified heating and cooling contractor
Step 2:Purchase furnace and all items for installation
Step 3:Have furnace installed by January 1, 2017
Step 4:Have sufficient heating to continue rehab efforts in suite for spring occupancy
why we're doing it
Clean House is an organization of people dedicated to providing support for individuals who desire to start a new life, free from the bondage of addiction. Our presence in the community, actively and passively, advertises hope for those passing our building daily that there is a solution to active addiction. It is important for local men, women and especially children to see recovering men living sober and being productive members of society.We welcome all of our neighbors to attend meetings and to witness recovery in action.
