The Kelly House, LLC was founded in 2012 by Richard Winant and his wife and life partner, JoAnn Napoli-Winant. Their primary mission is to provide a stable, structured and supportive residential experience for men. The goal is to work with each individual collaboratively on PROBLEM-SOLUTION-PLAN OF ACTION and on various Life Skills. We strive to give residents a reason to do something different. "Functional Recovery"
After working with several sponsees and taking them from one disappointing sober house after another, Rich came to the conclusion that there was a definite need for a quality mens' sober house that provided a truly safe environment and encouraged men who lived there to incorporate the 12 steps into their lives and to practice the principles of AA in all of their affairs.
The Kelly House now has a recovery dog- Bella, a Labrador/Heeler mix!!!
