The Heart and History of the Manna House

The Manna House was founded in 1997 by Bob Mersmann and Dan Boden to give those caught up in the bondage of addictions an opportunity to learn how to live a better way, God's way. The vision was to give men struggling with addictions a safe place to be fully recovered and restored to an abundant life in Christ.


For over 20 years, the Manna House has been operating in Brookshire, Texas as a residential addiction recovery and rehablitation campus.  During this time over 600 men have lived in the residence with excellent recovery results for those who remain in the program long enough for it to be a lasting change.  It is a unique program that utilizes biblical principles and the Christian Twelve Steps of Recovery in a  safe, peaceful residential setting.  Our experienced and caring staff understands the recovery process and are committed to help each resident and their family through this journey.  

Often there are those within our family, church family and circle of friends that need help with addictive issues, but they are not sure where to go or how to get the help they need.  This is why the Manna House is here, to transform offering men a NEW START.  If you, a loved one, a Christian brother, or a friend needs help, please contact us at (281) 375-8864.
