Our History

About The H.O.W. Foundation

The H.O.W. Foundation was created 40 years ago by a group of Tulsa businessmen and women in an effort to help men with addictions find the road to recovery. Our program is no-cost; all we ask for is the willingness to change and face your demons. The men who take up our program will undergo recovery based on the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics/Narcotics Anonymous and will engage in physically demanding work. We give our residents the opportunity to work hard to earn their life back, picking up important skills and lessons along the way. During a typical year, approximately 280 men reside at our foundation. Of the men who undergo our program annually, around 30% will successfully complete it.

Hope

We carry the message of the disease of addiction to others and the hope inherent in recovery.

A Power Greater than Ourselves

We believe, from the changes in our own lives as well as the lives around us, in a loving Higher Power of our own understanding, however that Higher Power may be expressed.
