Recovery Homes for Women

Talitha Koum is a non-profit society operating two recovery homes for women. We are unique in allowing our clients to live with their young children so they can accompany their mothers as they journey on the path to recovery from their addictions.  We offer spiritually rich, 12-step addiction-recovery programming, augmented by life-skills training, counselling, and arts and crafts. Key to our success is our practice of “loving our clients back to living.”

Our recovery homes for women are located in Coquitlam, B.C., and we welcome women from throughout the province and beyond. We are a registered charity with the Canada Revenue Agency.

Our key partners are B.C. Housing which provides Starr House to us, and the City of Coquitlam which partners with us in the ownership of Gianna House. We are qualified to be on the Assisted Living Registry and are listed in the Red Book Online which is the authoritative guide to social services in British Columbia.

You, too, can partner with us clicking here. Please donate to help support our recovery homes for women. Help us help our women and their children lead healthy and fulfilling lives.
