A few short years ago, we broke ground on a vital piece of the recovery continuum of care designed for our community. Where once stood the old Cherokee Children’s Home is now a beautiful residential support home for women and their children. This home, developed to help support the recovery of women struggling with mental health and addiction disorders, will provide a safe refuge for those ready to rebuild their lives. We hope this home will be where individuals can enjoy support and compassion and gain the independence to live free from addiction and the stigma of mental illness, and fulfill their purpose while mending their fractured relationships with themselves and their families.

A groundbreaking for the Men’s facility was held in Fall 2022 and the facility opened its doors to the first residents in June 2023. 

The Men’s Home is one of the final stages to complete the Recovery Continuum of Care that was designed especially for our friends and neighbors.


The facility, which is located at 197 Children’s Home Loop, is just over 4,000 square feet and cost around $2 million. The facility has the capacity to house up to eight men at any given time, with patients staying in the care of the facility until they are in a place to transition back into their home communities.


The Men’s Home joins the roster of recovery and support services committed to proving there is “Hope in Recovery” offered by the Cherokee Indian Hospital which includes the Analenisgi Inpatient Unit, Kanvwotiyi and the Women’s Recovery Support Home.
