Leadership at POF consists of women and men knowledgeable of the recovery community, women’s health and wellness issues and accessing community resources and is therefore responsive to the needs of its residents.
Aisha Muhammad is Founder and Executive Director of Point of Freedom Recovery Community. After a personal battle with addiction, Aisha found that, unlike her, many women had nowhere to go that was conducive to a successful recovery. So, it became a dream of hers to create a space to serve these women. Point of Freedom Recovery House was created with the intention of offering a clean, safe home with structured classes such as recovery and relapse prevention, job readiness, nutrition for daily living and GED preparation and inviting women from meetings such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. Over 20 years later, POF Recovery House is still a clean and safe home for women and we have amplified our work to include community-based programs.
