Wayside House Inc
Delray Beach, FL. 33483
Wayside House was founded in 1974, by Dr. Susan B. Anthony, great niece of the women's rights advocate of the same name, and Phyllis Michelfelder. As women in recovery, these two pioneers recognized the need for a safe and supportive haven for women who were grappling with alcohol and drug addiction. With the courage to make a difference in the lives of others, Anthony and Michelfelder rallied support from a group of dedicated women, many themselves in recovery, raised $10, and together they turned a dream into a reality by purchasing a white frame cottage in Delray Beach. The cottage became known as Wayside House. Guided by the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous, Wayside House admitted its first residential client in 1975.
