OUR MISSION

Speranza House offers a nurturing, sober, home-like recovery environment to encourage and offer hope to women.

Americans are dying due to drug abuse more frequently than ever before, in part because only one in ten people with substance abuse problems receives the help he/she needs. Our goal at Speranza House is to end the cycle of destruction that addiction has imposed on these women and their families. We want to be able to provide opportunities for them to acquire the tools needed to become caring, nurturing mothers, as well as productive citizens within the community.
