In my experience Shurrun's house goes far beyond supporting those struggling to maintain sobriety. Shurrun's proved to be a safe haven for me, a person with no drug or alcohol abuse history to get back on my feet during the pandemic near the end of 2020 and early 2021. The organizers are very down to earth and, moreover, provide basic necessities when they are otherwise lacking. I would love to see Shurrun's become a community supported by grants or partner with other nonprofits to become a larger nonprofit in the DFW area. It would also be nice to see poverty number decrease, if multiple branches were to be formed. I would love to see transportation partnership for those without vehicles struggling to get to work, orientation or interviews. Thank you for your service!

They are giving a home to some people that may otherwise have been homeless and lost. They maintain a positive role in the community and give back to the community. The only thing I could see maybe doing to add to the other wonderful things they do is maybe get a few more Shurrun's houses in the area.

This sober living home has all the tools needed for residents to succeed. They help with rental assistance, free food, clothing, public and private transportation so residents can make meeting and work on time. Residents are also required to stay very active in their recovery to prevent relapse.

Great place for the women to come and stay sober. If they don't have the funds right off, the organization works with them to allow time for them to secure employment before they have to worry about having to pay their full portion of the rent. It's great they work with you because most have no money starting out

Shurrun's House saw a need in the community to help the less fortunate and has created a welcoming comfortable environment for the ladies to feel at home, feel safe and not have to worry about where they would sleep at night. A homeless shelter is no place for women and especially someone who is in active recovery because they are filled with drug addicts that are not trying to get clean and can also be a trigger for someone who recently recovered from alcohol and drug abuse.

We help the women gain their independence while staying drug free. When they don’t have a place to turn to because of the bridges burned during addiction , we give that second chance and allow a person to prove they have changed

This organization is there for women after addiction treatment and helps them get on their feet. They have safe housing to come to on the bus route so they could look for employment and eventually gain their own independence. This is a great place to turn to when you don’t have much money but still want the help.

Shurrun's House is a non profit sober living house. They accept referrals for women in transition in the community in need of a change to fight their addictions. They assist them with access to employment opportunities, resources within the community . They are easy to work with and give 110% in the rehabilitation process.
