History of NHCORR  

A group of people who are passionate about quality recovery housing started NHCORR in 2017. They envisioned a voluntary certification board of recovery houses that would determine the minimum quality standards for ethically operating peer-based recovery residences focused on best practices of support for people in recovery. The volunteer board took a grassroots approach to start the organization. They followed National Alliance for Recovery Residences (NARR) standards, reworked the language, and developed state standards for certification.


NHCORR hired its first employee, Executive Director Kim Bock, in January of 2020. 

NHCORR is an affiliate of National Alliance for Recovery Residences (NARR), a nonprofit dedicated to expanding the availability of well-operated, ethical and supportive recovery housing through its national standard for the operation of recovery residences.
