Kentucky Oxford House
Kentucky's Group Home Loan Program, Oxford House, helps to support those who are in recovery from alcohol and substance misuse. Groups of 612 individuals in recovery may apply for a low-interest loan for up to $4,000 to help acquire rental property and turn on utilities.
Following establishment, home loans are to be repaid within two years (at approximately $175.00 per month). Residents will provide weekly equal-share payments to the operating expenses of the house, including rent, utilities and loan repayment. Any overage of funds should be utilized in service projects and assisting with the establishment of additional Oxford Houses.
Oxford Houses are established to be self-sustaining recovery homes. To be chartered: (1) the house must be democratically self-run, following the policies and procedures of the Oxford House Manual© (see Related Links); (2) the group must be financially self-supporting; and (3) the group must immediately expel any resident who returns to using alcohol or illicit drugs. Evicted residents are encouraged to seek treatment and reapply for admittance into the home following completion of a treatment program.
Kentucky currently has six established Oxford Houses serving men and women, as well as one serving veterans exclusively. Existing homes are located in Louisville and Northern Kentucky. For information regarding availability and application into one of these homes, or how to apply for a loan and develop a new Oxford House, please use the Contact Information.
