Bright Spot Sober Houses for Women provide a safe, supportive, structured environment for those women taking the next step on their recovery journey. The homes are designed to help women stay sober through community living and accountability. We have 3 houses located in South Minneapolis — House 1 and House 2 are near Portland Avenue South and East 42nd Street, and House 3 is near Pillsbury Avenue South and West 25th Street in Uptown. All houses are very bus accessible.

“Frequent contact with newcomers and with each other is the bright spot of our lives.”
— Alcoholics Anonymous, Chapter 7, Page 89
