A non-profit sober living house for recovering alcoholic men.
Established in 1970
To provide a safe, clean, and structured environment that will give "willing" alcoholic men from all walks of life an opportunity to become fully self-sufficient and self-supporting, regardless of race, ethnic and religious backgrounds or socioeconomic status. Our purpose is to help and support as many alcoholic men as possible to find recovery and return to society as responsible and productive citizens.

SELF HELP IS THE THEME AT CABRITO HOUSE!
The Cabrito House is a very special place for those men who suffer from the disease of alcoholism and who yearn for life without alcohol.
Our manager and Board of Trustees all have wide personal experience with the heartbreak of alcoholism as we have personally helped or shared in the recovery and rehabilitation of several hundred men.
Cabrito House will shelter and feed 15 men. Since its existence, hundreds of men each year seek the Cabrito House miracle of sobriety; most do find this miracle.
Today, these men are not lost souls, lonely, or dependent on alcohol. Instead, they live happy, productive, sober lives, rejoined with their families and careers. Many now participate actively in Cabrito affairs, including work with new residents, outside 12-step calls, participation in AA meetings, and serve as Cabrito Board Trustees. They've regained the love of their families and the respect of their employers and peers and a newfound self worth.
No man is ever turned away from Cabrito
House if he has a problem with alcohol. If he admits this powerlessness
over alcohol and sincerely wants sobriety, he is qualified to be a resident
regardless of his station in life.
Each man must seek employment as soon as he is physically able and he is expected to pay for the bare cost of his food and shelter while here.
We believe that recovering alcoholics should
live in pleasant, cheerful surroundings, be welled and be counseled and
guided by other recovering alcoholics who have learned to live productively
in the real world without any alcohol. The successful experience of hundreds
of men proves that it IS possible to recover from the disease of alcoholism...that
Cabrito House offers hope to any man who will accept our helping hand.
The present Cabrito House is located in
Canoga Park, on a large comer site. It was first leased, then later purchased
under a 30-year mortgage from funds gained by money raising events such
as the annual Golf Tournament and barbecue. Fees from residents cover
only part of the cost of room and board so outside events must be held
to meet operating expenses, finance major maintenance and make improvements.
