What is Sober Streets?
Sober Streets offers financial assistance to enter Sober Living. It helps people get off the street into a setting that promotes and encompasses much more than just the absence of alcohol and other drugs. It promotes the attitude that a joyful and productive life is possible without alcohol or mood-altering drugs. We offer a safe, structured sober place to transition into a new way of living.
We remain successful with chronic drug and alcohol abusers due to their willingness to make a change from unhealthy lifestyles which may have included the pain of incarceration, of living in the streets, and of being alienated from family and friends.
Who can benefit from Sober Streets?
The men and women who have come to us for help have a variety of backgrounds. Many have long histories of substance abuse, homelessness and/or incarceration. They come to us with medical problems and legal conflicts. They rarely have the required identification to gain employment. Some have little education or marketable skills.
We provide a structured living environment that will help them become self sufficient. They will become employable and be required to have a job. They will be connected with a variety of community resources including assistance with job training, counseling, treatment and educational needs.
We take one person at a time off the streets and transition them into a new way of living.
The citizens of our community benefit as well with reduced emergency care visits, reduction in crime and safer streets.
Partners commit to give a monthly commitment to continue this life saving work. This support will allow our residents at a time the opportunity to get off the streets and transition into a new way of living. This will provide a warm safe place to live, bus pass for transportation, basic necessities and hygiene to get started.
The Resident will volunteer in our community to give back for the support they have been given.
Community Partners will get Monthly updates on the Residents that the Partner’s can see how their partnership is changing lives.
What does Sober Living Cost?
One month at Ignatia’s House costs $450.00. However, many of our residents cannot afford this amount in spite of a real desire to take action to receive the help they need. Plus in operating four houses there are always unforeseen maintenance and expenses that occur. Today, we need you more than ever. Our commitment at Gratitude in Action is to the worth of every human being and together we are making an investment in human dignity.
