Many newly sober people struggle to find lasting recovery because they're often forced back into the same environments where they first became addicted. Their new recovery tools aren't always strong enough to battle years of toxic triggers, old habits, and dysfunctional relationships. Our sober living homes give them a fresh start where they're supported by others who are also seeking sobriety.
hope drives our passion
We've been there. We experienced the grim hopelessness and debilitating loss of rock bottom. We found freedom and healing in recovery, and we want to help others find their way out.
Addiction robs us of family, friends, money, health, success, self-esteem, and too often our dreams and purpose. Purpose House helps you get that back. Recovery isn’t a life sentence to somber living. We go bowling, volunteer, have movie nights, wear ugly Christmas sweaters, and above all, we recover.
Our greatest joy is celebrating success stories. Many of our alumni move up and out to incredible lives. They find friends, jobs, careers, callings, partners, and spouses. We go to an alum’s wedding or cuddle a newborn baby. We laugh, cry, recover, and discover a life filled with purpose.
Recovery takes a fresh start
Many who truly want to start over find themselves with nothing: no clothes, food, job, or money. Purpose House's Fresh Start Program helps people turn their setback into their comeback. Here are just a few of our amazing success stories.
Kristen's recovery is a shining example to others still searching for help. She explains, "Today I live a life I'm proud of! I work a full-time job that I show up to on time. I pay my bills. I am honest and dependable. I give back every change I get. I love myself for exactly what God created me to be."
together we can help Many More
Often, the only thing that stops people like Kristen, Haley, Tiffany, and Alec is one or two week's rent. Our Fresh Start Program helps men and women, who have completed their time served in both Sarasota and Manatee County Jails, move into Purpose House. A small tax-deductible gift from you could literally mean the difference between life and death. Would you consider helping someone today?
