Helping Hand in Fight of Addiction

$22,262 of $150,000 goal

Raised by 245 people in 10 months
Created June 27, 2018
Guildhaus
Jack King was a retired Chicago Firefighter who had a dream to open a halfway house for men struggling to recover from drug and alcohol addiction.
In 1986, Jack purchased the building “Guildhaus” and kept the name. It seemed appropriate as the name “Guildhaus” is of German origin—“guild” meaning “brotherhood formed for mutual aid and protection” and “haus” meaning “house”.
On January 1, 1987, Jack held the very first AA meeting there.
Jack passed away in 2006, leaving the legacy and brotherhood of Guildhaus. Currently, our Halfway House serves 22 men and our Recovery Home serves 16 men in a family-like atmosphere.​​
