WHO WE ARE
ESTABLISHED IN 1992
The Highland House, located in historical New Castle, PA, is a state licensed halfway house of the Office of Drug and Alcohol Programs and the Pennsylvania Department of Health. The halfway house has been a CARF accredited program since 1999.
In July 2000, Highland House became independent of the Women's Shelter and Rape Crisis Center at which time we moved to our current location on Highland Avenue as a halfway house for women.
In August 2019, Highland House opted to transition from a Women's Halfway House to a Men's Halfway House with our first admission to take place in October, 2019.
Until people confront themselves in the eyes and hearts of others, they are running. Until they suffer others to share their secrets, they have no safety from them. Afraid to be known, they can know neither themselves nor any other; They will be alone.
Where else but in our common ground can we find such a mirror? Here, together, people can at last appear clearly to themselves - not as the giants of their dreams, nor the dwarfs of their fears - but as individuals, part of a whole with a share in its purpose.
In this ground we can each take root and grow, not alone anymore as in death, but alive to ourselves and to others.
What others are saying:
"The retention of staff members in the halfway house is quite remarkable for a behavioral health agency. The dedication of the staff members to the agency and the persons served is evident in all of the program's operations." - CARF
