Humming Bird House , LLC (“HBD”)
At this time, HBD accepts only private forms of payment and provides women-only, men-only homes in recovery for 18 years and older who are not currently on parole. Past terms of parole do not disqualify applicants. It’s not about the individual, it’s about the environment, which is unique to every other sober living house in Idaho. Law enforcement bed-checks and house searches are not a part of our environment, and our residents are all self-motivated in their recovery.
Upon receiving an application, HBD will contact the applicant via a phone call to pre-qualify them and to set up a time for the applicant and HBD to both express their expectations at the prospective HBD House with either the Live-In House Manager and/or the Director of HBD. Over-the-phone expectation interviews can be conducted if the applicant's circumstances require it. You meet us, and we meet you.

HBD is a zero-tolerance sober living house. If relapse occurs, the Residency Agreement will be terminated and the individual must leave the HUMMING BIRD House under the direction of HBD Management, which could be to leave immediately. In this case, HBD will take steps to try and help ensure the individual has a place to go. The individual is welcomed and encouraged to reapply after a 30-day period. This is NOT an imposed penalty. In the Founder's experience of living in over (10) sober living houses and now operating them, it is the only way to keep a house a legitimately sober and safe environment, and not a house where people don't use or drink that much but continue to live there. It is what is best for our HBD Houses and the rest of the individuals living there.
In case of relapse and your Residency Agreement is terminated, do you have any plans in place?
If yes, what are they? Paragraph
