Oakwood Home for Women is a non-profit halfway house that has been helping women to recover from alcohol and drug addiction for 50 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. Visit our Facebook page for updates on our facility!


I learned to be responsible and self- supporting all thanks to Oakwood. It taught me that life is about giving and not just taking. Oakwood showed me what sobriety could be.

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.

Oakwood has shown me how to be grateful and what sobriety and recover means. Oakwood has taught me structure and discipline to carry through my life.
