100% of your donation goes directly to supporting mothers who have made the choice to end the cycle of addiction, for themselves and their families.

The mission at Parisi House on the Hill is to end the cycle of drug and alcohol dependence of our clients, all of whom are mothers.

Parisi House on the Hill (Parisi House) is Santa Clara County’s first mother-and-child residential alcohol and drug treatment facility, allowing mothers to focus on their six-month treatment program without the emotional distraction caused when separated from their child. Parisi House provides living facilities for 20 mothers and 22 children (up to age 5) who have made the choice to end the cycle of substance abuse.

Our unique evidence-based programs not only address the specific needs of recovery, we value the unification of women and their children and understand the effects of addiction on the entire family. Our unique child-inclusion treatment program aims to enhance a child’s sense of trust and bonding, while simultaneously supporting a recovering mother’s confidence through hands-on parenting success.

Founded in 1994, the Parisi House on the Hill drug and alcohol treatment facility opened with just 16 beds! Today, the expanded facility houses up to 20 mothers and 22 children, includes a large laundry facility, two large kitchens and family rooms, as well as playgrounds with custom-designed structures for the children.

Parisi House on the Hill, located atop a beautiful mountain setting in a rural area within Santa Clara County was expanded in 2004, allowing us to double our capacity and impact! This expansion would not have been possible without the support and shared vision of our special contributors Joe Parisi and John Sobrato.

On Tuesday, May 3, Parisi House will be part of Silicon Valley Gives (SVG), an online giving day that supports nonprofit organizations. It’s 24 hours of nonprofit giving—and it’s your chance to make a real difference in the lives of mothers who have made the choice to end the cycle of substance abuse, right here in Santa Clara County!

Your donations go directly to helping a ‘mother and child’ participate in a life-changing residential treatment program. Here’s an extraordinary example of how Parisi House supported this mothers’ effort to end the cycle.

“In 1996, I made the decision to end the cycle of addiction. With my toddler by my side, I participated in the Parisi House Alcohol and Drug Treatment Program. Today, I’ve been sober for 20 years and my (then toddler) daughter recently graduated from Sonoma State University! Attaining sobriety has had a generational and continual impact on my entire family.”
