Light House Sober Living’s commitment to creating a safe and supportive environment for men and women in the early stages of sobriety has done more than just impact individual lives. It has transformed the Port Clinton community by equipping its clients to become some of the most community-minded residents in the city.

Light House now plans to open a third sober living home, and it is asking the community to help fund the project.

Light House currently owns one men’s house and one women’s house in Port Clinton. The house at 507 Fulton St., which sits across from the men’s house, was purchased by Light House earlier this year and will become a Level 1 recovery house, which is the least restrictive category for recovery homes. The 507 Fulton St. house will become home to men who have successfully navigated recovery but are still working through practical challenges to complete independence, such as purchasing a home.

The new house needs an extensive overhaul. Upgrades include a new roof, foundation repairs, extensive interior remodeling, electrical updates, a bathroom addition, and the installation of a parking lot and outdoor recreational space. Ohler & Holzhauer is donating an HVAC system.

“We’ll have a new furnace and central air for free. Ohler & Holzhauer has done a lot for us,” said Light House Sober Living Executive Director, Kenn Bower, Jr.

Light House is hosting a fundraising campaign to raise money to cover the cost of the $100,000 project. Donations to Light House Sober Living can be sent to P.O. Box 24, Port Clinton, OH 43452, or through the donation link at www.lighthousesoberliving.org.

Donations will not just help build a home. They will help build a community that is stronger than ever.

“We provide a very solid, supportive, sober environment during one of the most pivotal times. The early recovery period is so vulnerable. If you don’t have things just right, it doesn’t happen,” Bower said. “We help create some really solid people who have lived here, moved out, and stayed connected to the recovery community. They greatly impact the local recovery community, and the community as a whole.”
