The Magdalen House, a nonprofit organization helping individuals achieve sobriety and sustain recovery from alcoholism at no cost and based on 12-Step spiritual principles, is pleased to announce that they have been recognized by the third annual edition of Best in DFW, a people’s choice awards program from The Dallas Morning News. This recognition honors the people and places that make North Texas special. North Texans were asked to nominate and vote for their favorites. Approximately 3,680 businesses were nominated in 13 main categories and 300 subcategories.

More than 130,000 votes were cast. “We are honored to be recognized by the community as a Best in DFW nonprofit, we are deeply appreciative of our clients,team, partners and supporters who voted and showed their support,” says Lisa Kroencke, CEO of The Magdalen House.

The Magdalen House has served women in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and beyond since 1987. This honor from the Dallas Morning News and the entire community comes at a monumental time in The Magdalen House’s history as they began offering services to men in July of 2023. The organization launched Men’s Community, and October 2023, they launched Next Step, their three-phase, non-residential program that provides support and structure for an alcoholic woman at any stage of recovery.
