Dave Horstmann is a person in long term recovery since January 2015. He is currently sitting as the President of the Board of Directors and has been part of the RecoveryATX board since 2018. He and a few others merged their startup recovery club, The Station, with RecoveryATX, and helped grow it from a volunteer only, grassroots organization, into a fully staffed, grant funded agency.
Dave is also an ex officio member of the Board of Directors for Oxford House, Inc. through his service as the current Chairman of the Oxford House World Council, which he has served on since 2018. He entered Oxford House in early 2015 from being homeless, and left as an alumni in late 2018 and now owns his first home. In his time in Oxford House, he lived in three houses across south Texas, helping give guidance and support, including one he opened in Austin.
Outside of his service to the recovery community, Dave has a career as an Estimator for a local metal fabrication company and has been in that field since 2016. He moved to Austin from Houston to chase this opportunity and has been here since. He enjoys spending his free time biking, camping, hiking, and attending live concerts and art shows with his fiancee. They share a home together in Manor, TX with their dog Fawkes and are looking forward to their upcoming marriage.
