Honu Home is a Peer-Operated Respite.  Meaning that all staff and volunteers are individuals who experience mental health, substance use and/or trauma issues; many of whom have been incarcerated themselves.  Honu Home is not a group home, half-way house or treatment program.

We believe in treating people like adults.  We believe in giving people the right and responsibility to make choices and be the directors of their own lives.  Many of us have experienced mental health systems, correctional systems, welfare systems etc. that often direct and plan our daily activities.  At Honu Home we believe it's time to take charge of your own life.

Honu Home is only a 5 bedroom house so even though you may be a great match for our house, you will want to keep searching other options.  It is very difficult to get into Honu Home.  For those of you coming to Honu it will be important that you are at a place in your life that you truly want to move forward on your journey utilizing peer support.

Program Eligibility Requirements

  • Guests must be either, coming out of a State Correctional Facility
  • or within 18 months of release or parole, 
  • or on state probabtion for a felony,
  • or involved in any problem solving court.
