St. Joseph, Mo., Oxford House Information

Oxford houses are used by recovering alcoholics and addicts as temporary housing in early recovery.  Oxford houses may be privately owned or be a part of some organization.  Typically there are around eight people living in a house.  These people share the cost of rent.  There is generally an interview and an initial deposit of around $200 which includes the first week’s rent.  Rent is often a weekly affair – typically around $75.  The occupants have jobs and attend local 12 Step meetings

At present St. Joseph has three men’s Oxford houses and no women’s house.

New Hope Al-Anon has a fresh look

New Hope Al-Anon began last January with one meeting a week.  We now meet Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 5:30 PM.  This past month we have been actively working to create a new fresh look for our meeting room.

This room restoration was completed with Al-Anon labor and material donations.  Some serious elbow grease coupled with positive enthusiasm saw the job through.

For those unfamiliar with Al-Ann – it is a program for the families of alcoholics.  At present all of New Hope Al-Anon meetings are open so we do not exclude the families of other addicts.

Here are a few photos of the completed room:
