Housing program provides shelter to those in need
Recovery from addiction can be extremely difficult under even the best conditions. But when a person is struggling to find a place to sleep each night, it can be nearly impossible.
That’s why New Vision of Hope’s transitional housing and shelter program is designed to alleviate that worry and free clients up to focus on their addiction. The program includes seven transitional houses and three women’s shelter locations that cater to those battling addiction, HIV/AIDS, or homelessness.
The transitional housing program provides support for a vast amount of people between the organization’s seven houses. Two are set aside for women while the other five are for men. Clients typically share a room with another person. House managers set up a list of chores for each person to do around the house to make sure everyone is pitching in and taking responsibility for their living space. As clients begin to find outside work, New Vision House of Hope will charge a housing fee, but that fee varies depending on a client’s ability to pay.
While New Vision House of Hope staff embrace clients with open arms, they also make sure clients understand that the ultimate goal is for them to regain independence and control over their lives.
