A Message From Leadership


Readiness to Serve Others

Progress House, Inc. has been around for many of us. We have all seen it go through various changes throughout the years . One thing that has never changed for me is my overwhelming gratitude for the people back in my early beginnings that made the difference in helping me set the foundation for a life worth living. I am here to help make sure the legacy lives on and this organization is here many years from now helping people. To help an individual is a mighty fine act of service but to help sustain an organization that has the potential to help thousands, now that is really something. In my home we have a saying, " If it's convenient, it's not service". Please come join in and help make a difference.

Progress House Needs You!

Financial Gifts

Now, more than ever, we need support from community members like you to continue providing services for those seeking recovering in our region. Your one-time or ongoing support allows us to continue to provide our critical services and to provide the items that our clients so desperately need such as blankets, nutritious meals, clean clothing, and more. Moreover, we're constantly working to improve our facilities and maintain the grounds.
