Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Motivation for the Lia House comes from the overwhelming need for this type of mission in the targeted community. In addition, the Motivation comes from the desire of the management team, to give back to those in need. The management team having been through the early recovery process understands the urgency of this mission and has decided to take action instead of just being aware of the needs of the community. This is about addressing and providing a viable solution to the needs of the community we serve. All of the management team have come together to create a place where adult men who suffer from the disease of alcoholism and drug addiction can provided a solution to all of the areas of their lives affected by the disease.

We offer a Residential Therapeutic Community recovery program with a mandatory nine (9) month stay at the facility. The residents will be given a safe, sober environment in which to live, three (3) meals, and all necessary personal items. The residents will be required to participate in daily groups, Anger Managements & Parenting classes, and Life Skills classes in addition to 12-step meetings and community service opportunities.

K.I.S.S. Foundation, Inc. is a not for profit Ohio corporation receiving no county, State, or Federal funding. We are operated completely on generous donations and gifts in-kind.

We have elected a new Board of Directors and brought on the Alumni to assist in fundraising efforts.

The new board of directors are motivated individuals coming together to achieve two goals -
Keep KISS Foundation, Inc. open and help available to the targeted population and to secure on going funding sources.

We have helped over 2,000 adult men to get sober and lead productive lives.
