Connections for Life - Women

Description

Hours: M-F 8am-6pm, Sat 8am-5pm

We provide a twelve-step re-entry and transitional housing program for women coming from prison, treatment facilities, battered women’s shelters and other referral agencies.

Each woman (resident) is provided an initially rent-free, fully-furnished apartment, clothing, food, job placement assistance, financial management assistance and access to medical care. The resident is required to attend twelve step recovery meetings and begins contributing toward her expenses upon obtaining gainful employment. Connections provides transportation to and from work, medical appointments, grocery store, recovery meetings, etc.


Mission Statement: Connections for Life, through the collaborative networking of support services, fosters the development of a healthy lifestyle pattern for women who are single and indigent, and who are in transition from dependence to independence. To accomplish this, Connections for Life will offer services in the area of need, including After Care (a support group), substance abuse meetings, assistance in finding housing and employment, education and individual counseling.
