Katherine’s and Rita’s Houses

Katherine’s and Rita’s Houses are transitional housing programs for homeless, adult women in recovery from substance abuse. We offer structured, family style living designed to assist women to return to independent living as productive members of the community. Residents may stay up to two years and each resident develops a personal success plan tailored to her individual needs. Katherine’s and Rita’s House staff team consists of a full-time Program Manager, Case Manager, and Life Skills Coordinator. The team’s focus is on creating a safe environment that supports healthy lifestyle changes and nurtures each resident’s potential.

Resident Eligibility:

  • Single Women
  • 18 Year of age and older
  • 30-60 days clean and sober from drugs/alcohol
  • Enrolled in an Out-Patient Treatment Program

Donations Requested

We continue to welcome donations of dish and bath towels, bedding, and new pillows. We are also in need of household items such as toilet paper, paper towels and household cleaners. Lastly, both houses are in need of table and floor lamps. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support!
