Welcome to Wayside House
Wayside House, Inc. was founded in 1974 by Dr. Susan B. Anthony, great niece of the women’s rights advocate of the same name, and Phyllis Michelfelder. As women in recovery, these two pioneers recognized the need for a safe and supportive haven for women who were grappling with alcohol and drug addiction. The two women rallied support from other dedicated women, many themselves in recovery, and raised $1,000 to purchase a white frame cottage in Delray Beach. It became Wayside House and admitted its first residential client in 1975. Today, while the original cottage remains the core of the facility, Wayside has expanded in scope and size and includes a variety of unparalleled services and programming for women 18 and older seeking recovery from problematic substance use.
