Who we are
And Why We Exist
We believe the toughest place for a college student in recovery might just be college. Today, alone in the crowd isn’t the only choice for young people getting well and continuing their education in Madison. Peer support in healthy homes at Aaron’s House for Men, and Grace House for Women are cornerstones to a growing community of college students in recovery.
Continuing education, employment, healthy relationships, counseling, and 12 step meetings all contribute to building long term recovery. Where you call home can make or break all of the recovery work. A community of recovery focused peers is the bonding ingredient that can keep recovery working.
Aaron’s House and Grace House are safe communities to come home to from the time you begin turning your sober days into sober months until you can say “I’ve been sober 2 years. I have a degree worth having, a job I care about, and relationships I’m proud of.”
Aaron’s House and Grace House are substance use recovery housing options for 18- 26 year old men and women who are ready for higher education, meaningful employment, improving relationships, and healthy living. Both homes are one block from the shores of Lake Mendota, near downtown Madison, Wisconsin, close to Madison College, UW Madison, Edgewood College, and other higher education resources.
