As graduates, the women already have a support system in place, employment and connection to the community. The Rea of Hope New Life Apartments provides our graduates with an affordable beginning and enables us to continue working with them to get their credit, fines and other financial and legal problems solved; avoiding the stumbling blocks to a successful recovery.

My journey began on August 19, 2013. Like most I was beaten down and desperate. Unlike some, I wasn't too sure if I had hit my bottom because by the grace of God my addiction did not land me in jail. I made a decision to put myself in detox. Knowing 7-10 days wasn't enough. I went to a 28 day facility where I began to learn about myself and my addiction. I then again decided to go further. On September 23rd, I was accepted to the Rea. Thinking I knew better I ended up leaving the Rea for a relationship to later find out they were actively using drugs. Read More

The Mission of Rea of Hope is to provide safe affordable housing for West Virginia women in a positive homelike environment that fosters recovery from alcohol and/or drug addiction and promotes self sufficiency.

The name "Rea of Hope" comes from an AA member Betsy Rea. Betsy Fletcher Rea was born in Dunbar, West Virginia in 1930 and at the age of eight was stricken with polio. The years that followed would involve times of sacrifice and courage for the entire family. She would endure numerous surgeries; hospital stays and separation from her loved ones and would never be mobile again without the aide of crutches, braces, or a wheelchair. Read More
