Aaron’s House is a project spearheaded by the Aaron Meyer Foundation in collaboration with experts in the field of recovery counseling. Aaron’s House is guided by evidence based practices proven effective for young college students in recovery. The Aaron’s House project has captured the hearts and minds of the Madison community and people everywhere who care.
In his memory and reflective of his spirit, Aaron’s House is a supportive living environment for young men, ages 18-26, who are in recovery from chemical dependency. Living at Aaron’s House, they continue their college educations and lead fuller, more healthy lifestyles.
Every step we take in creating Aaron’s House in Madison, WI is documented. Eventually what we learn will be shared with interested parties. The Aaron’s House Program should be replicated in other college communities. We will help establish similar houses for college aged men and women in recovery all across Wisconsin and the United States.
Success is built on reaching out to others and creating the supports necessary to meet our goals and keep us on track. The Aaron Meyer Foundation recognizes the importance of building partnerships and relying on the special talents of those outside our organization to drive us forward. Within this collaborative culture, our mission is enhanced and we find ourselves facing limitless opportunities that encompass direct service, public awareness, prevention, education, and impact of national scope through program duplication.
Aaron’s House opened on August 13, 2007. One of our first student-residents received a diploma from the University of Wisconsin in December 2007. We are grateful for his work and his achievement.
