Our Mission

Who Benefits from Permanent Supportive Recovery Housing?

Permanent supportive housing can positively impact these alarming statistics and can reduce health care and incarceration costs in the long-term.

We believe that long-term recovery is enhanced by or thru long-term treatment.

The Supportive Recovery Housing model meets national standards (Wisconsin Association of Sober Housing) and provides long-term recovery support job training, and education for individuals with SUD who are: 

a. Completing rehabilitation program(s) and in need of ongoing support to build and sustain long-term recovery

b. living unsheltered and in need of recovery housing in order to engage in recovery

c. re-entering the community from the criminal justice system

d. participating in drug courts

e. diverting from the criminal justice system for SUD treatment and related support services.
