Mariposa Heritage House (MHH) opened its doors in 2001 as a program of Mariposa County’s Department of Human Services. Since then, it has gained recognition as a unique drop-in recovery center.
In 2011, due to massive budget cuts, Mariposa County could no longer afford to provide the services. Friends of Heritage House, a group of supporters, was formed to explore ways to maintain this essential service for Mariposa County citizens. With the group’s help, the program completed the transition to a non-profit organization that same year.
Mariposa Heritage House is now a program of Alliance for Community Transformations, Inc.
Mariposa Heritage House inspires people to redirect and improve their lives by offering both peer-counseling and recovery support services – including training opportunities and access to resources for individuals and families – set in a safe, supportive environment.
