WHAT WE DO: 
We provide a free platform to search for and connect with people looking for sober roommates and for sober living homes.

We make no representations about the members and sober living homes on the site, and have no involvement with any agreements you make or interactions you have with them. We are not responsible if information made available on this site is not accurate, complete, or current. We make no guarantees that you will find a suitable roommate or sober living home through use of the site, or that the individuals who use the site are or will remain clean and sober.
