Project HOME is on the frontlines of addressing one of the most devastating crises in the nation—homelessness. Today, Project HOME is redoubling its efforts by creating recovery housing coupled with services for people impacted by the opioid epidemic. By creating safe, recovery-oriented housing right in the epicenter of the crisis, Project HOME will empower adults to break the cycle of chronic homelessness while addressing the impact of addiction.
Maguire Residence will launch this initiative by refurbishing an entire city block in the heart of Kensington to include 42 homes and green space. One of three new affordable permanent supportive housing options for people who have experienced homelessness and are committed to recovery, Maguire Residence will focus on attainment of employment and educational goals while establishing a lifestyle that promotes wellness, recovery, and community. The Project HOME Recovery Initiative will transform not only lives, but entire neighborhoods.
Recovery and support services will be offered by Project HOME. For individuals with histories of homelessness, mental health or addiction disorders, each will have progressed in their recovery to have the skills necessary to live independently and support services will be available on and off site. Services will focus on attainment of employment and educational goals and establishing lifestyle that promote wellness, recovery, and community.
The building will offer affordable living in a setting that reflects the diverse nature of the community.
