Mission statement

Our mission is to enrich the lives and spiritual well-being of all we serve and improve the safety and welfare of our community by equipping each participant with resources to maintain a healthy, self-sufficient, and purposeful life.

Statement of faith

1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
3. We believe in the deity and humanity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His present rule as Head of the Church and in His personal return in power and glory.
4. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the barrenness of damnation.
7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, with equality across racial, gender, and class differences.

In 2002, Ms. Bobbi Jo Reed purchased a home in the historic northeast area of Kansas City. Her goal was to provide transitional housing for women who had completed inpatient substance abuse treatment. As a former addict and alcoholic, Ms. Reed understood the many challenges faced my men and women in addiction recovery who are trying to transition back into society.

In 2003, Ms. Reed founded Healing House, Inc. based on the belief that a safe home environment is critical to life-long recovery. At the same time that Ms. Reed founded Healing House, there were approximately 900 women in Kansas City undergoing inpatient treatment, but only 24 safe residential beds available to them following treatment.

Program accomplishments

Since its founding, Healing House, Inc. has markedly expanded its scale and reach. Under Ms. Reed's leadership, Healing House has purchased and refurbished numerous vacant homes - several of which were former drug houses - into safe, sober homes for both men and women. Healing House has also purchased two apartment buildings where families are restored and parents reunited with their children.

Each year, Healing House provides help and healing to nearly 300 men and women. More than 8,000 individuals in recovery have been served by Healing House. recoveryhousing is currently available for up to 180 adults and 25 children in the same Kansas City neighborhood. This area - once riddled with drug dealing, prostitution, and gang violence - is rapidly being transformed into a safe and protective neighborhood through the collaboration of Healing House, numerous volunteers, and like-minded residents.
