Oakwood Home for Women is a non-profit halfway house that has been helping women to recover from alcohol and drug addiction for over 40 years. Through the loving and structured care of the staff and board of directors, we have seen families restored and women overcome addiction to become productive members of the community.  These same women have gone on to share with other women the precious gift of sobriety they have received.  The women living here have expressed a sincere desire to change their lives with our guidance.

Although there is a small fee for room and board no woman is ever turned away for their inability to pay.  They are helped to find employment, get the medical care they need, assisted through legal matters, and helped with education through parenting classes, budgeting and so much more.

Oakwood Home for Women depends on the continuing support of our community, such as Give For Good, for its success. This year the funds we raise will be used for the completion of the upstairs remodel. Visit our Facebook page for Resident Spotlights and get to know who your donations are helping!


Oakwood has helped me have hope in my life. I never thought I could make it to my 28th birthday and because of Oakwood, I am there! Oakwood has taught me how to live life to the fullest and to be a better mother.   ~Brittany D. 

Oakwood changed my life. It taught me how to be accountable in all areas of my life, how to sit with myself, and how to be a responsible woman.   ~ Katie J.

Oakwood showed me what real recovery looked like. The people who surrounded the residents showed us how great life could be, and now mine is just that! I am home with my boys and the life I have is all because of the work done at Oakwood Home for Women.    ~Courtney K.
