The ability to stay free of substance use concerns is the first step to recovery and leaving homelessness behind. This program started as a vital part of recovery for those with substance use concerns. Over recent years, the program has developed into a permanent shelter/housing program for those trying to maintain a sober lifestyle, but feel that they must be remained attached to a program of support and service. The program holds 15 men that live in a community setting, but work to assist other homeless people through various services provided by the Opportunity Center.
This unit is a three-story apartment complex providing affordable and safe housing for 15 individuals diagnosed with a physical disability. The program allows these individuals to gain the personal and economic empowerment needed to break the cycle of homelessness. The complex is located within walking distance of our main emergency shelter where residents have immediate access to the on-site clinic and individualized support services and treatment programs as needed.
