“I earned my first paycheck in a long time. It feels good to be back in society, having a job and taking care of my debts. The next step is to get back into my family’s life.”


“My stay at Glory House has been nothing short of life changing. I’ve learned so many things since I’ve been placed here. “

Help Our Cause



Since 1968, Glory House has helped people struggling with addiction, mental health problems and poor life skills claim their lives by using evidence based practices provided by caring staff.

Both residential and outpatient clients develop the skills needed to live a successful life free of drugs, alcohol and crime. The trained and experienced staff at Glory House help clients find employment, housing and transportation. Individuals have the opportunity to address their many complex challenges. Clients identify their personal risk factors and develop winning strategies that keep them moving forward.

With the support and involvement of the local community, Glory House assists clients to become happier, healthier, stronger and contributing members of the community.

Glory House is continuing to accept gifts for Phase 2 of Glory House Apartments.

Now in its 32nd year, Recovery Month celebrates the gains made by those in recovery, just as we celebrate improvements made by those who are managing other health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and heart disease.

Each September, Recovery Month works to promote and support new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the emergence of a strong and proud recovery community, and the dedication of service providers and community members across the nation who make recovery in all its forms possible.

Glory House is receiving United Way funding for 2021, and has recently received word of approval for additional funding in 2022 (pending the success of this year’s United Way campaign).

The United Way grant has allowed us to increase the staff time devoted to Case Management. Glory House case managers assist clients with numerous practical needs such as obtaining and maintaining employment, making and keeping medical and legal appointments, and getting other life necessities from a driver’s license to a winter coat.

United Way funding also allows us to expand Case Management services into the Glory House Apartments, assisting several tenants with unique challenges as identified by the Department of Social Services. Kelly Cleveringa, our program coordinator states that "The United Way grant will help our case managers go the extra mile in serving our clients with professionalism and effectiveness."


I feel like I'm worth something now. They made me feel like I'm worth something.
