Orenda House

Sober Living Housing

Orenda House is a safe supported sober living environment for low income youth, adults, and families who struggle with maintaining housing.

To maintain a safe, supportive, and sober environment, all tenants must abide by the house rules. The Resident Manager (RM) lives on site and is required to conduct random apartment inspections, report all activity, and maintain the cleanliness of the common area and the yard.  

Orenda House is equipped with security cameras for front and back entrances and one each floor. All footage is recorded and viewed. Free laundry facilities, and a deck with a BBQ available for tenant use.  

Orenda is your home and as such we hope you will participate in keeping it clean and safe. We encourage you to report any concerns you may have as well as incidents you have witnessed that are in violation of the house rules. All reported incidents are strictly confidential and will not be shared with other tenants.
