“Hope Recovery’s Thursday night gathering is sort of like a 12th-step meeting… kind of like church… & a little like group therapy too.”

Every Thursday @ 6:30pm

3403 Winston Blvd., Wilmington NC

At Hope Recovery, we host spaces that cultivate healing in order to discover freedom from “addictions” of any sort – after all… we are all recovering from something. Together, we rediscover our sacred worth in life-affirming community by learning and sharing together, which inspires us to go out into the world to serve our neighbors.

We cultivate spaces of RECOVERY, BELONGING and SERVICE.

We are all Recovering from Something – Together.

Everyone is welcome. We affirm all people.

Every person is unique with their own story to tell. Everyone has their own history. Every persons experience matters. We each have an inherent wisdom to share with each other and the world around us.

We seek to create a community in which everyone matters. This includes all people living with addictions of any kind, recovering persons, survivors, hurting people, people in any sort of pain… and parents, family members & friends too! We find common ground in healing and remembering our wholeness – which is holy.

Find a Home in Safe, Comfortable Space.

If you say, “I belong here” – than you belong. The way our space looks and feels to those who visit us matters.

We can position our to heal when we feel comfortable and welcome enough to begin a courageous self-inquiry that is set in the light of God’s love for God’s created human creatures.

We recognize our ever-present state of being is constantly in need of community and connecting with others. We know we cannot heal along and need each other.

We know we are always in a state of learning, growing and changing. We courageously commit to continuous growth by engaging with one another by sharing our testimonies, experience, strength and hope.

We LOVE and Serve our Neighbors & Community

We seek to love God and our neighbor and live in service to both.

Our mission focuses include:

The Warming Shelter – an overnight, emergency pop-up shelter hosted for unhoused persons when temperatures drop below 30 degrees. We partner with Trinity United Methodist Church and The Feast Gathering.

Shared Harvest/ la cosecha compartida Community Garden – an 18-bed garden located in the backyard of our property, gardened by friends in which fresh produce is shared within the wider community of Wilmington.

Advocacy for Recovering Persons –We believe in the value of all people and especially seek to destigmatize the popular opinion about persons living with addictions.

We will educate our neighbors by showing them, through our actions that persons in recovery are contributing members of society and are gifted people who have much to offer the world.

Not all those who wander are lost.


Come and be Found – Our fellowship seeks to connect people living with addictions and anyone who says they are a “recovery person,” “in recovery” or recovering from something to God and each other by offering a raw, honest and safe space to know and be known.

Success! You're on the list.
