From a Facebook Post …
Today I turn 22. My road was paved at the Odyssey House where I was given the skills to be a woman with self-respect and another chance at life. Each year when this day rolls around, my heart is bursting with love and gratitude, and my eyes cry. I don't know that I would have made it that first year without being in a safe, nurturing, loving environment - one that was not easy by any means. I walked into that house a rebel and a broken woman; I moved out of it a changed woman. Thank you to everyone who helps keep the doors open!

About Us

“Our Program”

Founded in 1974, the Women’s Odyssey Organization, Inc. operates a supportive home for  women whose lives have become unmanageable due to alcohol/drug addiction. Odyssey House provides a social model residential treatment program based on the 12-step recovery program of Alcoholics Anonymous. The duration of our program is six to nine months.

Located in a quiet San Fernando Valley residential neighborhood, Odyssey House presents a cheerful, warm, homelike atmosphere, accommodating 10 residents. We are close to business complexes, shopping malls, places of worship and public transportation. From the outside, Odyssey House appears to be just another nice place to live. Inside, we are changing lives. Regardless of a woman’s background, she is never turned away if she is willing to maintain sobriety.
