Serving Southern California
Founded in 1991, Progress House is veteran owned and managed. We provide systematic, structured, alcohol and drug free "home-like" settings that are very conducive to transitional living situations and the recovery process.
Progress House Veterans Project: We are a veteran owned and operated transitional housing program. Our outreach focus is towards military veterans with combat stress/PTSD, TBI (Traumatic brain injury), substance abuse, and other service related issues. Our desire is to provide a safe, supportive, drug and alcohol free transition living environment for our warriors (men and women).
We currently have several homes located in the South Bay area of Southern California (Los Angeles area) with plans to expand with our “Progress House Veterans Project” which will provide housing specifically for separate men and women veterans.
Our residents are primarily regular members of society who are seeking a clean and sober lifestyle and/or a supportive transition to civilian life. (Due to our proximities to parks and schools, we cannot accept Penal Codesection 290 sex offenders).
With nearly two decades of hands on experience, Progress House has cultivated a comprehensive program within the recovery community, State and County Court Systems, and the Departments of Corrections and Probation. Progress House will provide regular progress reports to all agencies upon request as required.
New residents receive personal attention as soon as they enter our office for the initial intake and assessment process after which they are assigned to a specific location most suitable to their specific needs. At their new “home”, the resident again receives personal attention from the live in house manager and introduced to his new housemates. Every effort is made to assist the new resident feel safe and secure in their new surroundings.
Progress House offers each resident the opportunity to achieve their successful re-entry into normal life experiences and responsibilities outside the protective walls of the residence.
Progress House also has special programs effective for compliance with special cases such as: alternative custody, high relapse risks, and severe chemical dependency cases.
Because the formation of our veterans project is fairly recent we currently do not receive any outside funds or grants and operate entirely upon donations and resident financial support. Progress House recently partnered with Point Man Ministries South Bay, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization (EID# 80-0127006) which provides services for veterans and active duty military.
All financial gifts made to Point Man Ministries South Bay are tax deductable and will be utilized to continuously improve our veteran houses and/or assist our warriors with food, transportation, and other resources.
