Residents of Welcome House are required to seek and maintain employment. Job placement assistance is available. Once employment is secured, a weekly rent is paid by the client to help cover room, board and educational expenses. There is no time limit placed on the client's recovery program.

AA Meetings & Counseling Sessions

AA meetings and counseling sessions are mandatory.

Detox & Continued Abstinence

Complete abstinence from the use of alcohol or other mind-altering substances is required of all residents. Clients must be detoxed before admission - Welcome House does not have the medical facilities necessary for this purpose.

For more information about detox facilities in the greater Kansas City area, please visit the AA Central Office website.

"We extend a very heartfelt THANK YOU to the Kansas City community, reaching out every year to help us provide a positive alternative to those who are less fortunate because of alcohol or drug addiction. We at Welcome House will continue to uphold our standards in every way to make this community a better place for all of us to live."
