Paul Soderman Stover joined the AIM House Team in 2012. He attended Mercer County CC (NJ) and University of Dayton. He is currently pursuing a Masters of Divinity degree at Iliff School of Theology University of Denver with Colorado Certified Alcoholism Counselor, CAC pending. He is also a grateful alumni of The Meadows, Wickenburg, AZ (83’). Before working at AIM House Paul’s first substance abuse counseling job was with the New Jersey Dept. of Corrections working with adolescents. He then worked as Head Alcoholism Counselor at Freedom House (86-87), a men’s halfway house in Hunterdon County, NJ. and then at “The Clint Eastwood Adolescent Recovery Center”, in Monterey, California.

In 1989, Paul moved to Boulder and made quite the career change, becoming a Professional singer/performer. Paul produced and recorded numerous albums and performed on hundreds of stages throughout the US. After four years in Los Angeles working in the music and film business, he returned to beloved Boulder. In 1999, he and his wife Cathie started a 501c3 Non-Profit, partnering with the Kellogg Foundation, NASA, the Lakota and Navajo Nations, that served Native American Reservation Schools. Paul served as Executive Director for ten years. Simultaneously, they created Warrior Artists Productions a “sober” music, film and theater company that produced many projects, including the award winning stage play ‘Peltier” and “The Desert Sessions” with Nashville Songwriter Stephen Allen Davis, for PBS.

Paul’s favorite part of working at AIM House, is running ‘Creative Recovery’ at madelife on Tuesday nights. “It’s a fun time where the recovering community joins with participants to inspire each other to excel at producing “Abstinent Art” of all kinds”. He also loves working as a Mentor at the Castle “doing a small part on a great team, to help redirect young men’s lives so that they might find a path of “true north” and new health and happiness.” Paul was born in New York and raised in Princeton, NJ. His favorite place in the world to hang out is any BoCo Dog Park with his wife Cathie and their Golden (medicine dog) Auggie. Paul’s personal interests center around recovery, art, sports and Native American spirituality, where he has been privileged to practice ‘Traditional Lakota Ways’ for over 25 years.
