Since opening in 1992, The H.O.W. Center has housed and provided services for over 4000 men. Owens Davillier acquired some abandoned properties from the City of Beaumont and, with community help, renovated the buildings and began to house men in need. The H.O.W. Center provides room and board, three meals a day, telephone, laundry facilities (both necessary for employment), workout room, education center and more. Safety and nutrition are essential for recovering from addictions and we provide these along with the other necessary tools needed for success in this program. The men at The H.O.W. Center learn necessary life-skills to begin rebuilding their lives and becoming self-confident men and productive members of society. The residents are required to work a twelve step program, perform chores, and abide by rules. The H.O.W. Center’s supportive environment helps each resident to strive to be the best they can as sober men.
