We now offer three mentoring/sober living homes for men, all under the leadership of Director Joe Pellow. A house manager for each home provides further support and supervision. House Managers earn their title through leading an exemplary life following their treatment and residency. While living at one of our three Pellow Houses, men find accountability, structure, encouragement and Christian guidance. Of the 60 men who lived at Pellow House during 2012, 47 are still sober!
Men from all walks of life have come into our homes and come out whole again. Our rooms stay full by men who truly want recovery. "I don't want guys here who don't want to be here," stated Joe. "This isn't a place to send men who do not have a desire to change. It is for men who are willing to do the work." A long-term, structured environment following treatment helps lead to a complete recovery.
Joe is a valuable asset to Jim Riley Outreach. He recently became a certified Life Coach and works with men as they focus on the future. He believes there is no recovery without Christ. Drawing from his own personal experience, Joe built our mentoring program and continues to provide outstanding leadership.
