Together we can give back to
those who have given so much

Every gift makes a difference – your gift makes a difference.

Since 1956 for men and 1994 for women, Guest House has been providing a unique Catholic faith-filled, community atmosphere for clergy and men and women religious who are suffering from addiction, regardless of their ability to pay.

We rely on the generosity of individuals, organizations (parishes, dioceses, religious communities, and businesses), corporations, and foundations to carry out our ministry of providing the best opportunity for quality recovery and overall health and wellness.

These philanthropic efforts make it possible for Guest House to provide comprehensive addiction treatment and continuing care, offer education on topics related to addiction, and engage in addiction research to continue the excellent work of our mission.

Giving can be directed to a specific program or building, scholarship, or education and research.

FEATURED APPEal

“We place our roses into the earth for this time of nourishment, so that they will be held beneath the frozen ground where they will be prepared for what is to come. While they might otherwise survive, it is beneath the frozen tundra that makes them thrive”
Bridget Bearss, RSCJ

 

In the hush of winter, the clergy and religious at Guest House continue to work on their journey of recovery. Much like the roses, they get ready for what is next. While here, they regain the hope, patience, and strength that will allow them to return to serving the People of God. It is in their recovery they thrive and will bring the rays of God’s love to everyone they minister to once they leave Guest House. That is the miracle of recovery.

 

During this fallow time between the frost and the thaw, we count on your generosity to nurture the seeds Guest House sows – the seeds that grow into our clients’ ministry and shape the future of the Church. The clergy and religious appreciate your care and support and hold you in their daily prayers.

SUMMER APPEAL

Sister Helen is an accountant in a society of medical missionaries. The year she turned 30 was eventful. “I was back from five years in Uganda. My father died unexpectedly. I had a job in the real world, in an office with a liquor cabinet. And I began to drink.”

 

Helen continued drinking through her next missions. Then she returned to care for her mother, who was sliding into Alzheimer’s. “I had the perfect excuse and the perfect set-up to drink.” But an intervention by her sisters and family led her to Guest House. “I was there with a group of nuns, and we shared our stories, so it was easy to accept that I had a problem. It was the turning point.”

 

A community of trust

Months later, Helen was called into the Director’s office. “My community was on the phone, and Guest House gave me two options – stay longer or go to a halfway house. My sisters offered a third alternative: I was welcome to live in our community in San Diego.

 

“In 17 years there, I learned that sobriety brought with it the ability to focus on others, and not on myself. At 50 years old, I was trusted to be responsible. It was a gift from Guest House.” Today Helen is a financial advisor in her society’s leadership. Scan to Donate To donate online, go to: GuestHouse.org/give or scan the QR code below.

Your financial support helps Guest House treat clergy and women and men religious for problems with alcohol and behavioral health concerns that may interfere with complete and lasting recovery.

Corporate & Foundation Giving

The addiction treatment and aftercare programs at Guest House are devoted exclusively to clergy and men and women religious who are suffering from alcoholism, addictions and other behavioral health conditions.

They return with improved well-being and renewed purpose, impacting thousands of lives throughout their years in recovery.

This commitment is part of our designation as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, included in the Official Catholic Directory.

We rely on financial support from corporations and foundations, in addition to philanthropy from individuals and organizations, to carry out our ministry. Please consider partnering with us, so we can continue to serve our Church and strengthen Catholic communities around the world.
