Addiction Recovery

Director of Men's Mentoring -Joe Pellow 

Joe has been the Director of Jim Riley Outreach Men’s Mentoring program since 2003. Under his direction, the four Sober-Living/ Mentoring homes, known as the Pellow Houses, have provided the safe environment needed for men in recovery to focus on making good life choices, develop responsibility and be held accountable for their actions. These men are supported by peers who too, have faced addiction and not only survived, but thrived! .As a certified Life Coach, Joe leads by example as he encourages, counsels and mentors the men living under his direction. As a former meth addict, facing a potential 35 year sentence, Joe was able to conquer his addiction with the help and accountability of Jim Riley. He continues to pay it forward as a strong role model, spiritual counselor and leader for these men in recovery. His down to earth, laid back, and approachable demeanor makes it comfortable and easy for others to communicate and listen to him. The statistics for sustained recovery under the leadership of Joe Pellow are above 85% after one year living in the Pellow House. A man of great courage and influence, Joe Pellow is a proven success story and a person our community needs to learn from because of his experiences as an addict, survivor and influential spiritual counselor for others.

Through the sober living/mentoring homes, individuals find accountability, structure, encouragement and Christian guidance.  Men are encouraged to mentor to one another and pass on the healing they have learned.  There are approximately 25 men who reside under the director, Joe Pellow and a house manager for each of the 4 homes.  The house managers earn the title through exemplifying character qualities of someone to be trusted which can be a huge honor for someone who has lead a life on the wrong path.

The homes are clean and have all the amenities one would want in a home of their own and then some. 

Men are taught how to live in sobriety and are required, but not limited to the following:

  • Participate in random drug/alcohol testing
  • Work outside the home
  • Participate in the cleaning and maintenance of the home and grounds
  • Attend daily meetings as directed by the mentor
  • Attend the Christian Church of their choice
  • Follow curfew
  • Keep a clean cut appearance
  • Effective May 1, 2012, Pellow House became a tobacco-free facility. 


At Jim Riley Outreach, we walk hand-in-hand with individuals as they wage war on their addictions. We encourage men to remain in our sober living homes for at least one year. We have tracked our former residents over the past six years and find that 84% of those who remained with us for a year or more are still sober today!

We are proud of our former mentor, Brett Casey, who was recognized by Insphere Insurance Solutions as their 2013 Top Producer. Brett continues to be a part of Jim Riley Outreach by attending meetings, helping those who are struggling, and by serving on JRO's Board of Directors.
