Wendy Weaver founded Angel Manor in August 2001. She rents rooms in her home to women, some with children, as they walk a road to recovery. Opening Angel Manor was something she feels led to do to aid in her own recovery from drugs and alcohol. A total of 193 women have resided there since she opened Angel Manor with most women staying only a few weeks while they find employment. Adult residents are required to participate in a 12-step program with Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous as appropriate to their individual circumstances.
