History

The Sycamore House Story

 The Sycamore House is the  result of the gratitude of several alcoholics for the gift of recovery  and their desire to help other men in recovery by providing housing and a  structured living environment so the residents may learn to live happy,  joyous and free lives.

In August 2007 the search for a proper  building began and the house to be known as Sycamore House was found.  This beautiful old 1917 house had been badly treated and was in need of  major repairs. With the house came a wonderful side yard with an  astounding Sycamore tree.

The soon to become Sycamore House was  purchased in November 2007, and renovation began immediately with an  army of volunteers, all of whom were in recovery. In just a few months  the unloved, tired old house began to blossom into a charming residence.  Rooms were refurbished, walls and ceilings repaired, sections of the  roof replaced, plumbing and electrical systems updated. The basement was  transformed from a dingy, old store room into a beautiful  meeting/community room. Rooms and public areas were furnished by  donations. In January 2008, the Sycamore house became home to its first  residents.
