Center For Community Recovery Innovations Creates New Apartment At Shiloh House Program
Volunteers of America Massachusetts is excited to announce a recent award from MassHousing’s Center For Community Recovery Innovations (CCRI) of $72,750 to the Shiloh House Program located in Jamaica Plain. This grant will allow the program to increase the availability of affordable alcohol and drug-free housing in the Greater Boston area.
Thanks to the generosity of CCRI, the Shiloh House Program will be able to create a studio apartment in basement of the building and make some significant upgrades to the top two floors. Shiloh House currently has 11 female residents, all of whom are graduates of the Hello House for Women Substance Abuse Treatment Program.
The Shiloh House Program offers residents the continued support they need to prevent relapse and reestablish themselves in the community. The goal of the studio apartment is to facilitate the reunification of residents with their children. For many women suffering from addition, reunification with their children is one of their biggest goals. Funding from the CCRI will help Volunteers of America Massachusetts help residents accomplish this goal.
Thank you to the Community Center for Recovery Innovations for their support of women and their families. Fulfilling our mission would not be possible without their support. Thank you!
