Protea Recovery Housing

Our Recovery Housing is committed to providing a safe home for those individuals on a path to making positive changes in their lives. Our Recovery houses are designed to provide a safe place to call home while individuals work on their barriers to recovery. We will provide a home with staff oversight, peer support, and interventions focused on establishing independent stable housing and reclaiming their place in the community.

The program’s barrier reduction approach is designed to assist individuals with social and capital growth. A barrier reduction approach lends itself to promoting self- efficacy, independence, and empowerment to face life on life’s term.
