Tillman House provides an affordable sober living community with support to encourage long-term sobriety for Graduates of Dallas 24 Hour Club.
The Importance of Tillman House to The 24
By opening Tillman House, the total Resident capacity was increased by 52% from 78 Residents to 119 Residents, which allows us to serve more people in critical need at The 24 more quickly.
The 24's Wait List has decreased, making more space for newcomers, since we are offering the option to graduate to an appropriately staffed, safe, nearby apartment complex.
Successful Graduates no longer have the stress of moving far away from their "sober family" members and home-like, family environment since Tillman House is a ten-minute walk from The 24.
In 2022, the Recidivism Rate was lowered from 28% to 22%, a 6% decline. More time with our sober community gives the Residents a greater chance of maintaining long-term sobriety.

Stephanie, 24 and Tillman House Alum
"Before I came to The 24, I was very broken. I drank every day, starting around 6 in the morning and all throughout the day. I had damaged relationships with my kids and my family. I wasn't living; I was existing. I had tried treatment many times before, but nothing ever stuck. I always relapsed. When I arrived at The 24, I started meeting people and everyday, I became a little bit more me. It became like a family. I had support and things were happening for me instead of to me. Today, I have a relationship with my family. I feel free and not like I'm rushing home to drink now. The 24 and Tillman House have been a true blessing."
