Gratitude House was founded to offer shelter and meals to homeless and needy alcoholic women in order to rehabilitate them through participation in AA and community services. Over the past 46 years, the agency has grown to a fully accredited licensed treatment center for women. Gratitude House's primary mission is to offer rehabilitation and support services with dignity and respect to women with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health issues in a nurturing, safe and caring environment. We provide evidence-based, individualized clinical treatment programs to women in need of help in a loving, wholesome atmosphere without regard for race, religion, political preference, national origin or personal financial capacity. Our primary purpose is to return such women to society as sober, self-sufficient, productive citizens.
Gratitude House serves the needs of the poorest women in Palm Beach County - over 85% of our clients are indigent, homeless and jobless. Our priority populations are pregnant and post-partum women, IV drug users, and women with children who are involved with the child welfare system.
