The Optimist Sober Living House opened in November of 2013 with a six bedroom 3 bath, 4400 SF fully renovated home in St. Paul. In August of 2014 we added an additional house located in the same Battle Creek neighborhood. There is on and off street parking with public transportation available at both houses. Several rooms are large singles. There is a full laundry facility at both locations. Cable Television and utilities are included in the programming fees. The live-in managers provide leadership and orientation for new members.
