Recovery Community in Kenmore, Ohio The JADFA House

Founded on Faith, Recovery, and Community, The JADFA House is dedicated to mobilizing resources to increase accessibility to long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction.


With God as the main focus, we seek to mend the gap between recovery and faith that is not always seen in traditional style meetings.


Our community is open to all people seeking long-term recovery – having a sincere desire to stop drinking and using drugs.


We bring people together to connect with others who’ve experienced what they’ve experienced, opening the door to managing sobriety.

The JADFA House Coming Soon

The JADFA House is scheduled to open our first location in 2024. While we renovate this space, meetings and resources will continue to be available through Just a Dad From Akron, the shop where the vision for The JADFA House grew and took shape organically.


Donate or Become a Partner
Your donation helps us provide the facilities and programs for recovery support. Partner Organizations have contributed labor, supplies and expertise to help their neighbors in recovery.


Your Time Is Your Treasure, Too
We are thankful for helping hands and hearts in contributing to JADFA House operations. We’re building the list now and will be needing help from cleaning to facilitating to childcare during meetings once our building opens.


Not all methods are alike – but we know how they all work – so let’s talk about which support environment is right for you. And if a meeting we offer doesn’t fit your needs, we’ll help you find one that does.


Fridays at 7:00 P.M.
943 Kenmore Blvd., Akron, Ohio 44314
