Evan Haines is a Co-Founder of Alo House, and specializes in admissions, and marketing and business development. An active participant in the recovery world, it felt natural for Evan to transition into the sober living business, and help others obtain and maintain sobriety.
In 2010, he and Jared founded Alo House, which, in less than three years, became one of the most successful sober living residences in the area. Evan has a natural ability to connect with clients, and bring out a sense of hope in them.
Evan has a Master’s Degree in Community Development Planning from the University of British Columbia. His strong academic background, coupled with years of hands-on experience doing community-organizing work with non-profits, makes him a great asset to the Alo House team.
An example of this is the ‘Alo House Farms‘ project, an exercise in community economic development. It gives clients valuable work experience in a variety of areas, while simultaneously building their self-esteem, as they feel part of something larger than themselves, and positively affects those around them.
Evan has been sober since November 2nd, 2005.
