What is Havilah House?

Havilah House is a women’s only transitional living program in Chester County, Pennsylvania. This program is built around a recovery lifestyle. It’s more than just a place to sleep at night. It’s where we work together to build the foundation for a strong and long-lasting sober life. We live as a family of recovering people, building relationships and growing together. We currently operate one house in West Chester, PA.


Cost: $200/week
