Healing House, Inc. is a non-profit, faith-based substance abuse recovery organization. We work in the Kansas City metropolitan area to provide safe and stable homes with opportunities for spiritual and personal growth along with purposeful guidance and support for men and women who are committed to overcoming their addiction and becoming responsible, productive, drug and alcohol free members of our community.
Since its founding, Healing House, Inc. has markedly expanded its scale and reach. Under Ms. Reed’s leadership, Healing House has purchased and refurbished numerous vacant homes – several of which were former drug houses – into safe, sober homes for both men and women. Healing House has also purchased two apartment buildings where families are restored and parents reunited with their children.
Each year, Healing House provides help and healing to nearly 300 men and women. More than 4,000 individuals in recovery have been served by Healing House with an unprecedented 75% success rate. Transitional housing is currently available for up to 169 adults and 25 children in the same Kansas City neighborhood. This area – once riddled with drug dealing, prostitution and gang violence – is rapidly being transformed into a safe and protective neighborhood through the collaboration of Healing House, numerous volunteers and like-minded residents.
