I have a house that I would like to make an Oxford House. What is the criteria and process?

Oxford houses are located in good neighborhoods – that is the first criteria. Also, the house needs to accommodate at least 6 individuals, so it should have adequate space. Four or more bedrooms is important, as well as 2 or more bathrooms. If you think your house might fit this description, please contact Friends of Recovery Association We would be happy to talk with you about it!

Call us! We will set it up. Oxford House individuals, chapters and/or Friends of Recovery personnel will be happy to answer all your questions!
