Loving Our Clients Back to Living

We are a compassionate recovery and life-skills program for women who are seeking to live addiction-free lives.

Talitha Koum Society - Rise Up

Rise Up

“Talitha Koum” is ancient Aramaic for, “Little girl, rise up”—a motivational phrase we cite as we celebrate new life through addiction recovery. As a non-profit society, we assist women in healing from past trauma and overcoming addictions at two housing locations. Recognizing the importance of family, we also make accommodations for our clients’ children to stay with their mothers during their recovery journey. We are committed to providing a safe and supportive community environment for women to be able to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. It’s how we, “Love our clients back to living.”

Our Program

When clients commit to Talitha Koum Society, they join a caring and nurturing home where they emerge with new life skills, a sense of accomplishment, greater confidence and a sense of self-worth.
