We are Grateful FOR YOUR SUPPORT

Few people understand the tenacity it takes to recover from an addiction. Many who find their way to Purpose House enter our doors spiritually, emotionally, and financially broke. Their friends and families no longer trust them because addiction is a family disease.  Sooner or later everyone in the family is affected by the fallout.

It's a rare privilege to step in and help someone rebuilding his or her entire life. The men and women who commence from our homes emerge as strong, trustworthy, contributing members of society. Helping someone along on this journey is an honor.

Because self-sufficiency is a critical component of recovery, we don't ask for much. A helping hand to get started is often all our clients need.  And giving benefits you too. Purpose House Ministries, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit, so your gift is tax deductible.

We are pleased to offer the following programs to our clients, alumni, and Sarasota's recovery community. If one of these programs speak to your heart, would you please consider giving today?


covid-19 crisis

Everyone is affected by Covid-19, and our clients are no exception. We are thankful for our clients' health. No one has contracted this virus, but our losses are great.  Our clients and our ministry have suffered grave financial and social-emotional losses.

Alec's Scholarship

Too often, young people like Alec struggle to get a fresh start because they can't afford even one or two week's rent. The Alec Benson Scholarship Program helps men and women, who have completed their time served in both Sarasota and Manatee County Jails, move into Purpose House.


Fresh Start

We know the dark side of addiction. We see the news headlines, crimes and homelessness. What we don't see enough of is the hope.  According to the Bureau of Justice, within five years of release, 77 % of drug offenders were rearrested. HOWEVER, with the right support, people CAN recover and leave the crimes of their past behind.

CR at home

celebrate recovery

Currently, our Sunday night meeting welcomes almost 200 people each week. Every Sunday, we serve free hotdogs and drinks, and on the first Sunday of every month, we serve a free and delicious dinner to all of our guests. We also sponsor bowling nights, movie nights, and other sober outings. Your gift lets us feed more people, reach more people, and sponsor more outings.

the fine print on giving

We are thankful for all of your prayers and support. Every gift helps one more person find lasting sobriety. And best of all, it only takes one person in recovery to heal a whole family. Thank you!
