Our Community

Providence's community is what makes us truly special

We are lucky to be surrounded and supported by a community who has taken a revolutionary approach to recovery support.

Providence’s community is what makes us truly special. We are lucky to be surrounded and supported by a community who has taken a revolutionary approach to recovery support. We know that recovery requires connection and inclusion. Providence welcomes our residents to our home, and to an incredible recovery community of men who are poised to support them. Northbrook and the surrounding north shore communities are committed to supporting our residents. Here are some of the ways how:

  • Young adults in recovery on-site for peer support, meetings and FUN
  • Seasoned men from the AA community to mentor and sponsor our residents
  • Job and internship opportunities with local and Chicagoland businesses
  • On-site volunteer tutors
  • Community sports leagues
  • Community donations to sporting and other Chicagoland events
  • Family and Neighbor dinners (for area residents to learn more about Providence, its residents and recovery).
  • Resident participation in local community service and the Northbrook Farmer’s Market
  • Community recovery education
  • Parent support groups for Providence residents, alumni, and community members affected by substance use disorders
