Sunflower Houses



Mission Statement: The mission of Sunflower House is to provide low-barrier, affordable housing for formerly incarcerated and court-involved persons.

Goals: To create a clean and safe space for individuals working on their successful transition back into the larger community and/or social and economic stability.

Sunflower Houses provide a transitional sober-living space for those re-entering society through court involvement. This collaboration with INHS & URO strives to offer a stable living environment for court involved persons conducive for independent living and the excercise of individual agency.

Sunflower House officially opened at the end of December of 2021 and  we are always accepting applications.  Please keep in mind there is a large pool of applicants and preference is given to residents of Tompkins County, especially those who are on community supervision, in recovery, and/or court involved.
