Mahedy Sober Living HouseMahedy Sober Living House is a beautifully-restored Victorian home located in San Diego's Golden Hill neighborhood, with space available for 14 veterans.
Residents access counseling services and sober recreational activities at the Veterans Treatment Center to help them maintain their new positive lifestyle.
Mahedy House is on the California Register of Historic Places. VVSD purchased the house in 1996 and has made substantial improvements to it. The house is named in honor of Father William Mahedy, an Army chaplain in Vietnam who was instrumental in creating Vet Centers to provide onsite counseling to Vietnam combat veterans.
Father Mahedy is also credited with inspiring a group of Vietnam veterans to create the Vietnam Veterans of San Diego (VVSD) to serve and advocate for Vietnam veterans. In 2005, VVSD became Veterans Village of San Diego.
A resident manager lives at the facility, which houses both male and female alumni of the Treatment Center who are employed.
