A Sober Community
Built for men.
Normandy House helps residents become productive members of society. Practicing responsibility, such as curfew, chores, 12-step meetings and personal cleanliness helps you live more fully with others. Treating others with respect, learning to live in harmony, and becoming a valued individual in our world are the goals we cherish.
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 Thursday night Big Book study and The Wanderers Group meeting on the 3rd Tuesday of every month. Our annual summer trip to Akron is a highlight, as are the Chicago Open and fall’s McHenry Soberfest.
