Cornerstone Fellowship exists to provide an affordable, home-like environment for men and women who have successfully completed primary treatment for substance or alcohol dependence and who have the sincere desire to remain in a supportive community as they practice and develop their sober lifestyle and continue to grow mentally, physically, socially and spiritually. Residents will increase their personal skill levels in areas of honesty, accountability, obtaining and maintaining employment, social interaction, financial responsibility, goal setting and achievements.
We understand from personal experience and from working with others involved in recovery that an individual’s needs can vary for many reasons. However, while we cannot predict how much time a person needs to stay with us, we do emphasize stability. Without time to stabilize and practice what is learned through our guidelines, early relapse becomes a higher risk.

OUR STORY: When Jennifer Diederich founded Coming Straight Home Sober Living for Women in 2007, there were a few sober houses serving women in Saint Paul — but none in which she herself would have wanted to live.
“I saw women rushing home to less than ideal marriages and family situations in part because they wanted a bathroom without cracked tiles,” says Diederich. “I hoped women would do better and give themselves more time to recover at sober homes that provided more creature comforts.”
To test her theory, Diederich bought an affordable house on Farrington Street just off University Avenue in the Frogtown neighborhood of Saint Paul and set to work making her vision a reality. Within months of opening, she had a waiting list of more than 20 women.
Without the resources to buy another property outright, Diederich feels that her meeting with a property developer who prefers to remain a “silent partner” was a “God thing.” The developer had recently purchased a 6,000 square foot house on Holly Avenue in Saint Paul’s Crocus Hill area that he was willing to renovate and lease the finished property to Come Straight Home Sober Living. Within days of opening the house was full and the waiting list was once again growing.
Two Summit Avenue properties and a house on Grand Avenue were soon after acquired — somewhat to the alarm of surrounding neighbors. “We’ve been lucky to find properties in Saint Paul’s most exclusive neighborhoods and have worked hard to be good neighbors in every regard,” explains Diederich.

What is a sober house (a/k/a 3/4 house) and why are they important?
A sober house, also called a ¾ house, recovery house, or transitional living facility houses individuals recovering from alcoholism and drug addiction in order for them to focus on their recovery. Its residents are individuals coming directly from rehabilitation or 12-step programs, halfway houses, inpatient treatment facilities or those who simply want to have a sober environment to aid them in their transition. Sober houses provide a valuable method in assisting individuals in their long-term recovery from drug addiction and alcoholism, allowing recovering alcoholics and addicts a place to live a normal life while they continue their recovery.
What are common characteristics of a sober house?
The following are the chief characteristics of a sober house:
Residents live in or work out provided they follow the house rules.
It promotes 12-Step programs
It has a secured, safe and competent structure intended for the long-term recovery of individuals.
It has a 24-hour house manager and staff that implement the programs and exercises close supervision.
What is the difference between a halfway house and a sober house?
A sober house is an inexpensive drug and alcohol- free environment where the alcoholic or drug addict can obtain support from peer groups. In general, the rules at a halfway house are stricter than the rules at a sober house (sometimes called a 3/4 house). It provides a positive environment for recovering addicts and alcoholics to receive the emotional support they need from residents going through the same experiences. Experts agree that both halfway houses and sober houses (also referred to together as recovery housing or transitional living) are very important tools to use in one's lifelong recovery journey.
A halfway house imposes strict regulations for its residents in order to mitigate the chances of relapse. Residents are required to sign the house rules contract that includes the policy against bringing alcoholic drinks and prohibited drugs, and requires the adherence to curfew and similar rules. Noncompliance to the house rules subjects a resident to removal from the halfway house.
What things should I look for in evaluating sober homes?
Safe, secure and drug-free. The sober house must have the necessary permit to ensure fire safety and building security. Unwarranted intrusions from outsiders must be eliminated. Alcohols and drugs should be strictly prohibited within the premises.
Strict, written rules and guidelines. This is to ensure that the residents will have a structured environment that will minimize the possibility of relapse.
Supportive staff available 24x7. There must be a manager or a staff member to answer the needs of the residents 24/7.
12-Steps or comparable programs. Twelve Step programs are vital methods in alcoholism and drug addiction recovery. The residents must be trained to be accountable for their actions so that they will be able to cope up with the challenges that await them in the outside world.
