Ruth’s House of Hope


Located in Oroville, Wash., about five miles south of the Canadian border, Ruth’s House of Hope (RHOH) is a faith-based “place of refuge” for women seeking recovery from drugs and alcohol. The one-year program helps women develop and maintain healthy and lasting life changes through daily discipleship, rehabilitative programming, and transitional housing.


Women enrolled at RHOH must commit to staying and participating in treatment for 12 months. According to the program’s website, women are required to attend a variety of discipleship courses, ranging from the practical (“Anger and Unforgiveness”) to the motivational and inspirational (“Purpose and Passion”).

They’ll also forge new and healthy relationships with one another, attending a non-denominational church nearby.


Ruth’s House of Hope is founded and directed by a woman whose life was once “bound by cocaine and alcohol.” A mother of two children and experienced educator, she started the program to reach others searching for a new life.

There’s also a house supervisor on staff, though further details are not provided.


Pictures published on RHOH’s website depict a two-floor, lodge-like home surrounded by hills and a lake. All women have access to RHOH’s audio library.

In their survey, an anonymous relative gave RHOH five stars for its accommodations and four stars for its meals and nutrition.
