Recovery Foundation

Inclusive Recovery Foundation was founded in South Florida in 2017 by our board of managers, who all share a common vision and goal. We wanted to build an organization to support all pathways of recovery and provide resources to those in need of transitional living and vocational assistance. We at Inclusive Recovery Foundation do more than provide recovery residence scholarships in early recovery. We help those individuals find meaningful employment so they can support themselves after their housing scholarship has ended.


How We Help

  • Vocational Support

    Navigating early recovery can be very overwhelming and at times frustrating. Our volunteers have lived experience in recovery and have navigated these issues. Along with vocational assistance, the support we provide helps guide individuals along the recovery pathway of their choosing.

  • Resume & Interview

    We help individuals in early recovery stand out from the crowd by crafting a resume that showcases their talents to potential employees. We also go through a mock interview process to strengthen the individual’s responses in a controlled environment, where we can offer constructive feedback before it matters.

  • Recovery Residence Assistance

    Safe and supportive transitional housing is important for all people in early recovery. We provide financial assistance for strictly vetted recovery residences for a fixed period of time while the individual receiving the assistance seeks employment with the aid of one of our volunteers.



To provide transitional living assistance and vocational support for those seeking recovery, regardless of the pathway. Our mission is simple: we want to help people who don’t know how to help themselves yet. We seek to help individuals navigate the obstacles of early recovery to set them up for long term success.



To increase the availability of safe, supportive, and welcoming environments in which those who are new to recovery can learn and grow. To see individuals in early recovery find gainful employment and move closer to realizing their potential while starting their lifelong journey.

    Josh Wakefield

    In February of 2015 I hopped out of a dingy treatment center van and carried my garbage bag of clothes towards a one-story house in a less-than-desirable Neighborhood in Boynton Beach, FL. This house, my new “halfway house,” scared me to death. Having been born with a substantial social handicap to begin with, and having barely survived the “genpop” insanity of my 200 person treatment center, I had no idea how I would endure moving into a house with 8 complete strangers.
