The mission of Parisi House on the Hill is to reduce the inter-generational transmission 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 Not-for-Profit women-with-children residential alcohol and drug treatment facility. It began in 1994 with just 8 beds for women and 8 beds for children. It currently houses 42 beds in which women and their children (up to age five) may live for six months while receiving client-centered, culturally-sensitive services.
Our unique treatment program addresses the specific needs of parenting women, pregnant women, and women with newborns up to five years of age. We value the unification of women and their children and understand the effects of addiction on the entire family: Both generations receive services because both generations are affected by parental substance abuse. Our child development program aims to enhance a child’s growth, sense of trust, and bonding in a loving, nurturing environment during their six-month stay.
Parisi House on the Hill is privately set in a beautiful, rural area within Santa Clara County, California. Our original program, “House on the Hill,” was established in 1994, renamed “Parisi House on the Hill” in 2011 thanks to special contributors, Joe Parisi and John Sobrato, who shared a great vision for the expansion of an amazing program that works!
