The Aurora House

an environment where women can heal and recover.  



Aurora House  opened in December of 2015. In addition to requiring residents to work a 12th step program, we watched the situations that would derail a woman’s recovery and started building accountability and activities to help women stay sober through the most difficult times. Today, in addition to traditional sober house accountability, we work with residents on: 

  • Building a daily spiritual program      

  • Balance- i.e. balancing recovery with life and relationships, building a routine to help them thrive, time management tools, etc. 

  • Self care and meditation

  • Building a community of sober women

The Aurora House is a beautiful Kings Maplewood home full of light, old-world charm, original woodworking, and updated amenities like heated bathroom floors, a rain shower and an updated kitchen.  

Our home is a combination of cozy community spaces like the sunroom and 3 season porch where we have coffee and morning meditation or nightly 10th steps, the Den for quiet space where women do meditation, study or meet with sponsors, a workshop where women work on art, sewing, jigsaw puzzles or other hobbies and a TV room where laughter and many miracles happen.  


We are located on a private corner lot landscaped with flowers, rose bushes, small gardens, a fountain.  The large back yard has a grill, a hammock, and area for eating  and gathering.   

The Aurora House is located in beautiful Mac-Groveland neighborhood in St. Paul, 2 blocks from the Mississippi River and its walking paths.  Mac-Groveland has been voted the safest and best place to live in Saint Paul.   We are walking distance to grocery stores, pharmacies, coffee shops, restaurants, and bus stop.
