The board members of Bridges of Dodge County gathered to thank Jeff Nowicki from Hometown Glass for facilitating a great price on a new garage door and his donation of the installation at Joe’s House, a men’s sober living facility in Beaver Dam.

Bridges of Dodge County is a non-profit that was formed at the end of 2016. It was spearheaded by Cindy Hartt, Carol Roddy and Shelly Renzaglia. We were fortunate to have others join our effort and within a few months, we were able to purchase a residence. In March, 2017 The 1st Men’s Sober Living Residence was opened in Beaver Dam. It was voted on by the Board of Directors to name the residence after Joe Hartt, the son of Cindy and Randy Hartt who lost his life to an accidental drug overdose.

Joe’s House is a faith based home that allows six – eight men to live in a structured environment for a six month period (longer if needed). During this time, they are expected to get a job to pay they house fees, do chores, volunteer time, attend church, an in-house Lifeline Connection meeting as well as attend outside self-help groups such as AA, NA or Smart Recovery. There is live-in manager along with outside help from board members and volunteers. The men are helped with finding employment, getting to and from appointments and if needed assistance in figuring out finances.
Admission to Joe’s house is through an application process followed by an interview conducted by the admissions team. If you know of anyone interested in coming into Joe’s House or anyone interested in volunteering, please contact us:
Cindy Hartt 920-344-9179 or Carol Roddy 920-266-7338.
