Recovery center for women to open in Meridian-Kessler
On Tuesday, July 19, Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett joined members of the Heart Rock Justus Family Recovery Center, Overdose Lifeline, Inc., and representatives of the Meridian-Kessler Neighborhood Association for the ribbon-cutting of a substance use recovery center for women and mothers. The facility, set to open the first week of August, will take up residence near 49th Street and Winthrop Avenue in buildings formerly occupied by Indy Hostel.
The recovery center will offer individual support for pregnant women and mothers with up to two children under the age of two years old. Women and children can stay at the residence for up to two years. The city says it expects the center to serve 125 women annually.
Recovery center clients will receive services including job training, financial literacy, tuition assistance, and childcare, among others. Read more here.
