The Last Chance House, Inc., is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 2005 by recovering alcoholic men, for alcoholic men. Located in the northwestern Chicago, IL suburb of Crystal Lake, Last Chance House is an established residential home providing housing on a short-term basis for men from surrounding communities who are in recovery from alcoholism.
Last Chance House has a proven record of helping its residents learn how to connect, possibly for the first time, or reconnect with family, friends, employment and community. Its residents come from all walks of life: young, old, skilled tradesmen, laborers, executives, single, married, husbands and fathers.
Residents undergo a thorough interview process prior to acceptance, designed to ensure their interest in residency is earnest of heart and sober of mind. Last Chance House is a sober living environment in which all residents are required to become gainfully employed, attend regular twelve-step meetings and participate in daily residential chores.
