The purpose of the Emerson House Program is to help each Resident to become independent and complete goals in 12-18 months. At the same time, we require that substance abuse issues be addressed through outside resources including medical professionals and community programs.

Upon successful completion of the Emerson House Program, a Resident will be financially prepared to make it on his own. He will have:

  • A full time job
  • Paid all debts and fines in full
  • Emergency savings
  • Deposit for a rental

For some, this may take more time than others. For everyone, it will take hard work and most of all, dedication.

If a stable future is your goal and you’re willing to follow the Emerson House Program to reach it, we invite you to complete the application below.
