The Community House on Broadway is a clean and sober homeless recovery center that exists to help individuals & families in Cowlitz County become self-sufficient by providing:
Temporary & transitional housing for homeless individuals & families.
A safe, clean housing environment.
Regular nourishing meals, emergency clothing & personal items.
Professional case management (help developing & adhering to an action plan).
A working conduit with existing physical, mental & spiritual support services within the community.
We are a 501C3 organization under-girded by the Christian Mission set forth by Jesus in Matthew 25:35-40:
For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’
During their stay at the Community House, residents are required to abide by the house rules, which include abstaining from drugs and alcohol, participating in weekly House Meetings, engaging in Case Management in order to begin overcoming their barriers, and completing their chores to help maintain a clean and healthy environment for everyone.
