Santa Rosa CA—The Board & staff of California Human Development Corporation (CHD) was elated when the official word that the acquisition of the historic Stonehouse Inn had recorded and the property would be the new home of its Athena House residential recovery program.

This facility was most recently a high-end Bed & Breakfast, however, 3555 Sonoma Highway has had a rich history. Between 1909 and today this building has been a single family home, a restaurant, and a tavern, just to name a few. “This truly creative re-use of Stonehouse is really a nice way to round out a tumultuous history and that it is ultimately ending up as a place were women can recover and rebuild their lives is inspiring,” stated CHD’s President/CEO Michael Micciche. The acquisition came about through partnerships with long-standing agency friend and community philanthropist, Henry Trione, CHD’s Board of Directors, the Community Foundation Sonoma County, the Zygielbaum and Walter Family Funds at the Community Foundation, the Housing Authority and Community Development departments of the City of Santa Rosa, California’s Department of Community Services & Development, and the Clearinghouse Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI).

Athena House has been providing comprehensive residential treatment for women who suffer from chemical dependency for over three decades. “Our approach is based on respect, compassion and encompasses the mind, body and spirit of the individual. We offer an opportunity for women seeking recovery to gain the skills and become empowered to rebuild their lives and relationships,” stated Jenna McAdam, Program Manager. CHD has previously provided these services using three separate homes; the expansion into one larger facility will allow for greatly enhanced programming and service to additional women - right here in beautiful Sonoma County.

Athena House at Stonehouse will provide individualized treatment for women up to six months followed by a 26-week aftercare program with a very competitive cost of treatment, which is approximately $1,500 per month, which includes room, board and treatment services.
