Fellowship happens here.
Enjoy opportunities to connect with men who value sober living. More than regular local meetings and gatherings, the men’s fellowship activities include house meetings and other special evvents.
“Normandy House played an absolutely crucial role in my recovery. After a particularly bad relapse, I felt shaken and unsure what to do. In the men’s house, I found the structure I needed to achieve a level of stability and health that had previously eluded me. The camaraderie and sense of shared purpose I experienced with the other men were a big part of my healing. I met some terrific people who I hope I never lose touch with. Thanks to Normandy, I have a year and a half of sobriety, and I feel a renewed hope for the future that I haven’t felt for years. “
“Normandy House is a beautiful home which has given me the structure and accountability to help me change my life. For me today it’s change or die. I am truly grateful for the privilege to live here.”
