Our Thanks!

We are sustained through donations from individuals, businesses and charitable foundations who believe in our mission. 

A special thanks to our many contributors, who have allowed the Road to Hope to continue to operate and grow recovery housing in our community for over a decade.

         Our Mission

The Road to Hope Inc. is a drug and alcohol free, 501(c)(3) residential facility in Lorain County. 

The Road to Hope Houses provide an abstinence-based, twelve-step environment within which the addicted person receives support, guidance and faith necessary to become a productive member of society, while living a regimen of daily sobriety. Personal Responsibility is at the heart of our program. We provide a cost-effective housing solution and atmosphere guided by the program of Alcoholics Anonymous.​

Our successful residents reintegrate happier, healthier, and committed to twelve step way living as they return to their families, society and the twelve step community.


We host weekly Alcoholics Anonymous meetings in our event hall:

​​The Road to Hope been blessed to receive 3 matching capital improvement grants from the State of Ohio. These grants will allow us to provide 24 more beds to those in need.  We have already raised over $75,000 toward our part of the matching funds. We need to raise an additional $132,000 to complete our portion of the matching funds.

This amount needs to be raised by July 1, 2019. Please help us meet our goal by either donating through PayPal at the bottom of this page, or by mail donations to us at 158 Irondale St. , Elyria, OH. 44035. Checks to be made payable to The Road to Hope, please note ‘for capital projects”.


The Road to Hope is a program of good will. Fundraising events are a key revenue stream for us. Your support sustains us.
