Recovery and Resiliency Trauma Center of HOPE

The Recovery and Resiliency Trauma Center of HOPE currently provides safe, temporary, transitional housing and wrap-around support services for men who have been deeply impacted by Addiction, Substance Use Disorder, gun violence, homelessness, and/or incarceration. The first 90 days are free, and after that the rent is $300 per month. Residents are able to stay up to one year; however, we do not turn anyone away if they are not quite ready. There is a shared communal space where meetings are held weekly, helping to build community and a system of support for residents living in the home.
