Recovery Homes

The Outreach Center operates five recovery homes: Naomi , Journey, Joshua, Genesis & Monroe

Three homes are halfway houses, where individuals can stay while they begin to rebuild their lives, and the other homes are 3/4 homes , where clients can transition to once reaching a certain level of self-sufficiency. All individuals living in the homes are "dually diagnosed" with both mental illness and substance abuse.

While living in the homes individuals begin the slow process of learning to manage both their mental illness and their substance addiction. As they begin to receive counseling and therapy for substance abuse and mental illness, they also begin to learn life skills, such as budgeting, resume writing, and job seeking.

Living in this community setting with 24-7 guidance and support, they slowly begin to reclaim their dignity, self-confidence and respect for themselves and others.

Here they find not only shelter, but a family that provides support and encouragement. Clients work shoulder to shoulder, helping each other through the transition from a life of hopelessness and pain to one of hope and fulfillment. They find a safe-haven to put the pieces of their lives back together, and enter the workforce and community as new person.
