The Aaron J. Meyer Foundation, Inc. was established in 2005 to provide housing options and activity opportunities for college students in substance use recovery in Madison, WI. We opened Aaron’s House in August 2007. Today the Foundation inspires people to use their talents and ideas to make Madison a “community of choice” for college students who want to better themselves and get an education while living a recovery life.

Aaron’s House is a project spearheaded by the Aaron Meyer Foundation in collaboration with experts in the field of recovery counseling. Aaron’s House is guided by evidence based practices proven effective for young college students in recovery.  The Aaron’s House project has captured the hearts and minds of the Madison community and people everywhere who care.

Created after the death of Aaron Meyer at age 18, the Aaron J. Meyer Foundation, Inc. is comprised of family and friends who are inspired to affect the world because Aaron lived.  In his memory and reflective of his spirit, Aaron’s House is a supportive living environment for young men, ages 18-26, who are in recovery from chemical dependency. Living at Aaron’s House, they continue their college educations and lead fuller, more healthy lifestyles.
