Family Home for

Women, Because...


Butterfly House offers women in all stages of recovery a safe, supportive, cooperative home in the beautiful Lakes Region of New Hampshire. 

Living together as a family, we share our spiritual 12-step practice, our challenges as women in recovery, and our household expenses. 

Our communal living model of true sisterhood and spiritually-vibrant family living allows us, as women, to enjoy the comfort and companionship of a beautiful home that we otherwise could not afford on our own.

By sharing the joys and realities of daily living, together, we can avoid the isolation and loneliness that might have haunted us before we found a spiritual path to recovery.  

At Butterfly House, in an atmosphere of sisterhood and emotional safety, we encourage each other to re-discover our best selves — to fully realize our unique spirit, individual voice, and source of deep inner strength.


The Butterfly House family home helps us build and live lives full of hope and resilience, lived with enthusiastic respect for self and others.

Heart & Hands

A home promoting lives of dignity, honor, and self-respect.
