Beckett House: Serving men in recovery

Triumph opened Beckett House in March of 2009, originally as a pre-recovery house. In 13 years, we have served 14 men. Now, Beckett House has recently been updated and is focused on serving men in recovery who are staying abstinent from the use of drugs and alcohol. An onsite manager, who is also a tenant, works closely with Triumph case managers to support all in their recovery. The intention of this program is to give men a safe place to live while finding employment and completing their recovery programs. The Case Manager works closely with other agencies that provide services such as education and employment, supports tenants to help get them enrolled into different low-income housing, and facilitate support of any other services they might need to move out into the community successfully.

Beckett House is named after past board chair Jim Beckett. In August 2022 the organization announced Jim Beckett’s departure as Board President & member of Triumph Treatment Services (current Triumph Board and staff pictured right). Mr. Beckett has been a part of Triumph’s history since 1977. He became Board President in 1980, and since then has helped steer the organization through changes in membership, building partnerships with other community organizations, assisting in the development of multiple programs, and many other accomplishments.

We are grateful for Mr. Beckett’s leadership and wish him the best while he spends more time with family and friends. We sincerely thank him for his contribution and leadership in his 45 years with Triumph.
