Anika Cooper founded Simply Grace in 2011 after her own experience in recovery. Named after her grandmother, who helped save her from drug addiction, her dream of helping other women break the chain of addiction came alive.

Simply Grace is not only a beautiful place to live but also a safe haven for women to get refuge while working on building a new life free of addiction. Simply Grace now has 7 women’s sober living homes, an Intensive Outpatient Program and a Thrift Store, that have been created from Anika’s vision to empower women to fulfill their purpose.

“I had an idea to open a house that was a lot more structured than where I lived and had a lot more accountability,” Anika said. “We give them a safe place to be successful.”
