At our first in person meeting post COVID-19, we selected the Women’s Life Recovery Program of the Haven of Rest Ministries as our July donation recipient.
This program is a 9-12 month residency program operating at the former Emily Andres house. They help women overcome their additions and include therapy and classes to learn parenting and life skills. They assist the women with court visits and personal appointments. This is one of the only programs in Michigan that allows the women to be with their children during the recovery program. The program also includes child care during the time the women are attending their classes or counseling. They also assist the children with life skills and school work. Graduates from the program frequently return as mentors to encourage current residents. Some of the current program staff are graduates of the program.
