About Jim Riley Outreach, Inc.


 

Since 1986, Jim and Robin Riley have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of serving others. 2 Corinthians 1:4 “He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others.  When others are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.”

The Jim Riley Outreach, Inc. is a 501 c 3 non-profit ministry helping individuals and families move into a life of recovery from addiction.  “The alcoholic is not merely a drunkard, the drug addict is not someone morally bankrupt seeking another high.  No, they are all, we are all people thirsty for the One who is thirsty for us.” Sharon A. Hersh, The Last Addiction

The focus is on healing and hope for individuals and their families who are seeking escape from their torment.  There is not a “quick fix” but tools can be obtained to begin the transformation of lives.  Our vision is to pass on the message of hope and healing and in turn, that person to pass on hope for generations to come.

Support groups are offered through the Outreach 4 days a week.  Discussions on faith are the main focus with emphasis on recovery.

In October 2003, Jim Riley Outreach opened its first mentoring (sober living) home for men called the Pellow House. They now operate three sober living (a.k.a. Pellow) homes for men and one sober living home (the Parker House) for women. The Rileys host weekly support group meetings for men and women.

Through the sober living/mentoring homes, individuals find accountability, structure, encouragement and Christian guidance.  They are encouraged to mentor to one another and pass on the healing they have learned. There are approximately 25 men and 4 women who reside (separately) under a director and a house manager for each of the 4 homes. 

Interventions and guidance/referrals are offered as well as a part of an all-encompassing plan for sobriety. Jim Riley shares his knowledge by speaking to various organizations and groups on awareness and prevention. 

In 2013, Jim Riley Outreach expanded their vision to include a mentoring home, named Blake's House, for young women aging out of foster care. Blake's House is under the direction of Jim and Robin's daughter, Marcie Riley Bazor and is located in Plano, Texas.
