Joe’s House is a faith-based sober home for men in recovery from substance abuse. The home has been established by and is operated via Bridges of Dodge County Inc., a nonprofit organization. There is an application process for acceptance into Joe’s House. For more information or an application, call 920-344-9179, email bridgesreocveryhomes@gmail.com or write P.O.
