WHAT IS OXFORD HOUSE

Oxford House is a concept in recovery housing from drug and alcohol addiction. In its simplest form, an Oxford House describes a democratically run, self-supporting and drug free home. Parallel to this concept lies the organizational structure of Oxford House, Inc. This publicly supported, non-profit 501(c)3 corporation is the umbrella organization which provides the network connecting all Oxford Houses and allocates resources to duplicate the Oxford House concept where needs arise.

The number of residents in a house may range from six to fifteen; there are houses for men, houses for women, and houses which accept women with children. Oxford Houses flourish in metropolitan areas such as New York City and Washington D.C. and thrive in such diverse communities as Hawaii, Washington State, Canada and Australia; but they all abide by the basic criteria.

Each House represents a remarkably effective and low cost method of preventing relapse. This was the purpose of the first Oxford House established in 1975, and this purpose is served, day by day, house after house, in each of over 2500 houses in the United States today.

OUR INVOLVEMENT

Access To Recovery is the trusted and first community-funded backbone to the Oxford House name in Rhode Island. We specialize in working closely with each individual house to ensure it's success. We collaborate with our community partners to provide furniture donations, guidance and technical support on an on-going basis. 

We also provide financial assistance (if needed) for individuals who wish to move into or relocate to an Oxford House.  

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

We are always looking for furniture donations such as bed frames, sheets, towels, night stands, dressers, bureaus, dining room tables, chairs, couches, pots and pans, silverware and plates, rugs, cleaning supplies, lamps, light bulbs, televisions, bookshelves, desks and more. This ensures we are able to assist in furnishing current and future houses

 

All donations are tax-deductible and are put to good use immediately. Contact us using the link below to coordinate any donations for this specified purpose.
