What is A Work In Progress?

A Work in Progress is a supportive community for women who are recovering from chemical dependencies, mental health diagnoses, emotional traumas, human trafficking, domestic violence, and more. Located in Southern California’s San Fernando Valley, A Work in Progress utilizes the vast recovery resources available in the Greater Los Angeles area.

A Work in Progress is all about helping women find true, lasting recovery and building quality relationships with others. Our goal is to help our guests return to mainstream society as vital women, ready to take on the world and rebuild their lives, one day at a time.

In our structured living environment, we focus on a shared family-style household where everyone takes part in the daily routines. We work together to learn healthy lifestyle and coping mechanisms. We are fully aware of the battles each one of us has to endure to rebuild our lives and we do not expect our guests to fight them on their own.

We owe our success to our supportive and friendly environment. Our program fosters growth and recovery for our female residents by providing sober, safe, and comfortable housing, in conjunction with opportunities to participate in recovery and support programs. Support groups and resources are conveniently close to our home and available on a daily basis.

A Work in Progress is a registered 501(c)3 California non-profit organization. We offer our home to women in recovery at a greatly reduced rate compared to other Los Angeles supportive housing organizations.
