Vision & Mission

Vision: Our vision is of a 5,000 – 7,000 sq. ft. facility providing the services and activities that are necessary for addicts and alcoholics to rebuild their lives.

Mission: To restore hope and encourage addicts and alcoholics in recovery; one step at a time, one day at a time, one life at a time. To support their development into productive members of our communities.

Why another program? Only through personal relationships can a sense of individual responsibility be re-established that will give men and women the commitment to follow through on a path to productivity in society, creating pride and accomplishment in life. Will Work for Recovery has become an invaluable resource to many in the recovery community providing mentors, building confidence for those in recovery, reducing recidivism and benefiting the community at large.

Carolyn Niesche and Paul Bierch started Will Work For Recovery in 2016 as a way to pay forward the lessons and wisdom of their own recovery journeys.

Their personal stories include years of addiction and the dark experiences associated with it including imprisonment, lost relationships, and poverty – both financial and spiritual.

What they learned has become the basis of the Will Work for Recovery™ program. Their recovery of full life and the joy it brings is what they experience and offer to others.

In General

Will Work for Recovery’s primary objective is to provide a positive and structured community environment by instilling and restoring hope for men and women in recovery using a variety of positive activities.

Will Work for Recovery is a direct response to the difficulty in lifestyle changes and habits created by alcoholism and addiction. Primary focus will be on men and women 18 years of age and older.

Research and studies have proven long-term recovery is built and established through a community of people in recovery mentoring each other to inspire and encourage each other to become productive members of society.
