History

HISTORY OF ANDERSON HOUSE

Betty Anderson

Anderson House grew out of a 1989 needs assessment conducted by a Hunterdon County women’s task force. The study revealed a startling gap in the need for residential addiction treatment for women and the availability of these services. Because Hunterdon County has an impressive history of support among fellow residents, insightful citizens understood that having a halfway house facility for women in the area would only enhance the quality life in the county. A coalition of concerned community citizens, business leaders, and professionals worked tirelessly over six years to obtain the funding and community support necessary to establish a halfway house for women.

Local benefactors Stanley and Nancy Baron donated a lovely home in Readington Township so hope could become reality. The house was named for Betty Anderson, a distinguished leader in the field of alcoholism and drug addiction treatment and a highly respected member of the community.

Helping Women Since 1995

Anderson House opened its doors to five women on February 9, 1995. In 1998, a transitional residence program was added to provide affordable housing and continuing care to those graduates at high risk of relapse. And in 2019, Anderson House expanded to accommodate 15 residents.

The Anderson House program targets New Jersey women who are homeless and indigent. Our goal is to provide these underprivileged women with high-quality addiction treatment that is equal to, or better than, that which is available to women who can afford to pay for their treatment.
