Respite House is located at 1408 Chicago Street, Valparaiso, Indiana. The structure was built in 1978 and is located on a lot consisting of .67 acres. The interior has been completely reconfigured in the summer and fall of 2009, to best meet our needs for a men’s halfway house. (Slideshow of the remodeling process >) Given the nature of the surrounding properties, it is somewhat isolated, yet centrally located.
