The women’s home is a cozy tudor-style house with a resident manager living in the building. With six resident bedrooms, 12 beds and two bathrooms, the women’s home is warm and inviting. A laundry room, community kitchen, cozy living room and wi-fi make the house a convenient home. Residents enjoy chatting around the fire pit in the spacious back yard and convenient access to public transportation.
Weekly community meetings are one of the favorite events where residents gain skills to thrive in relationships with others. Other opportunities for community involvement include the Breakfast Group, the Big Book Study and service work with local organizations.
Living Life on Lifes Terms
12-Step Works Best
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 other women who value healthy living. More than regular local meetings and gatherings, Normandy residents attend larger social events. Our annual summer trip to Akron is a highlight, as are the Chicago Open, the Women’s luncheon in the spring and fall’s McHenry Soberfest.
