We Support Recovery starts where you are - with addiction. Founder Stacy Hilde has lived experience with addiction and a family history of unhealthy alcohol use. Her husband Bob Hilde has been thriving in long-term recovery from an opioid addiction since 2005. Before that his father found over 35 years of sobriety from alcohol with AA. Bob and Stacy are raising two foster children whose lives have been impacted by addiction.
Since 2007, Bob and Stacy Hilde have been involved in local and statewide community service and disaster response leadership. After Bob’s business burned down in 2016, Stacy felt called to a new ministry - an opportunity to serve people in recovery. After doing extensive community interviews with people in recovery, providers, law enforcement and community leadership, she found that three key support pieces were missing for people in active addiction or seeking recovery:
1. Recovery Housing
2. Sober Recreation
In 2019, Stacy received a Substance Use Disorders Counselor Certificate from UW-Madison and in 2020, God opened the door for Bob and Stacy to open a privately owned recovery residence called Angel Hands Recovery Homes in Frederic, WI. In 2021, the ministry rebranded to We Support Recovery and was granted 501 (c)(3) IRS exemption status as a nonprofit organization.Read Less
