Finding Hope... One Step at a Time

The Twelve Steps are a strong component of many people’s road to recovery. We wanted to honor the symbolic nature of the steps by facilitating the growth of a place where many who are struggling with addiction can find peace during their recovery. Our ambitious and meaningful campaign focuses on the completion of the Spiritual Grounds at Pine Grove with the Pine Grove Chapel & Bell Tower. These elements will complement the existing Circle of Healing Sculpture, Fire Circle, Meditative Labyrinth and Medicine Wheel. 

Pine Grove Chapel

Located on the Pine Grove campus, the chapel will serve as a peaceful and serene setting for meditation, personal reflection, or simply a place to relax and enjoy. Standing 18-feet high, with exaggerated windows, the chapel will allow panoramic views of the beautiful landscape at Pine Grove. The chapel’s transparent structure will sanction patterns of light and shadows, creating an ever-changing interior influenced by nature’s season at hand.

Pine Grove Bell Tower

Unique to Pine Grove, the tri-prong bell tower will include three separate bells, each representing 4 of the 12 steps to recovery. The first and lowest hanging bell can be rung by one individual after completing the first 4 steps. Subsequently, the second and third bells will require the help of another person(s), upon completion of the second and third set of steps. The bell tower will stand as symbol of continued progress in each patient’s fight for victory over mental illness and other addictions.
