About Us

Living In Recovery, a nonprofit corporation,  was organized in 2010 by a group of volunteers committed to a dream of bringing the first recovery housing to Howard County. We now have three houses for men and one for women and have served over 100 people with 65% remaining sober while in residence. Experience has shown there is a need for more recovery housing in Howard County and that our housing model is effective.
