Our experience is vast and our passion runs deep for our business and our partnership.
We converted our first home into a home for those looking for a safe space to recover. There was no looking back after that.
There is nothing better than knowing we are helping to provide a much needed resource.
Georgia Giles-Jones and Bernard Jones met in 2010 while attending Business Management classes at St. Paul College. Georgia is a St. Paul native and has strong St. Paul family roots that date back to over 8 decades. Bernard was raised in Michigan but has been an active resident for over 15 years.
Both grew up around and witnessed firsthand addiction and the negative impact it has on individuals, families, and communities. Their entrepreneurial spirit and passion for helping individuals looking for another chance at life inspired them to open a sober house.
In 2015 Georgia and Bernard took the leap and decided to transform their own home into their first recovery home (Central House), followed by opening an additional recovery home in 2017 (Blair House). Their love for St. Paul and the recovery community keeps them committed to growing their business.
Starting in 2018 and 2019, Georgia and Bernard started helping individuals successfully open and manage recovery homes of their own as well as establish a foundation for a successful business.
When COVID-19 hit it was important for recovery home owners to remember they are truly essential and needed more than ever during this influx of worry, isolation and change. It became the perfect time for Georgia and Bernard to expand Central Village Housing, and create CVH Recovery.
CVH Recovery encompasses our Recovery Homes, Recovery Home Operator Course, Recovery Home Coaching, Recovery Home Audit, and group membership.
This isn't only the next step in Georgia and Bernard's business, but an exciting venture for the couple themselves!
Georgia and Bernard released their first E-course March 1, 2021!
This Recovery Home Operator e-Course will be a self-pace training on how to properly open, set-up, and manage a recovery home. Once completed, you will have gained the needed skills, resources, education and confidence to be able to operate and manage a reputable recovery home business.
