Living At Joppa House

Joppa House is a transitional recovery housing model that is intended to provide a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment for women seeking to continue their personal recovery from substance use disorders.  We introduce sober living skills, peer-to-peer fellowship, and support, to help individuals gain strength and coping skills that will aid in the transitioning of the women and their families, along with the ability to sustain enriched lives free from addictions.  Joppa House is a Christ-centered home that incorporates recovery principles, programming, counseling and a curriculum based transformation/life-skills program for women who are in active recovery.  

Eligibility for residency is determined by an application process and interview with our house director on a case-by-case basis.
     – Women with a pending court sentencing will not be considered prior to their sentencing date.
     – We are looking for women who are (i) Motivated to change; (ii) Good fit for the program; (iii) Good fit for the current residents.

Daycare is not provided by Joppa House Ministries staff, but is outsourced to assist women living in the house.  Daycare is intended for women to gain and keep full-time employment, or to go to classes to obtain skill for a better job.  We also have an indoor play area located in the basement of the 801 Campus with an additional on-site, fully enclosed, outdoor playground area.
