Recovery Residences & Future Services
Recovery Residences (Halfway House): The purpose of a recovery residence is to provide a safe and healthy living environment to initiate and sustain recovery—defined as abstinence from alcohol and other non-prescribed drug use and improvement in one’s physical, mental, spiritual, and social wellbeing. Individuals build resources while living in a recovery residence that will continue to support their recovery as they transition to living independently and productively in the community.
LaSalle, Bureau, and Putnam Counties and their collar counties are all rural areas that do not have close access to affordable transitional housing for those individuals being released from county jail, discharging from treatment, and those seeking stable, recovery supportive living space. This project would provide not only provide housing, but also drug and alcohol counseling, assistance in getting employment, group counseling with people who share their need for services and other wrap-around services as needed. Contributions made to this will be used for the construction of this project, not to fund the services Maitri Path of Wellness provides. Once the building is operational, insurance will be billed for most services.
A building has been purchased at 710 Peoria St in Peru along with the adjoining parking lot. Maitri Path to Wellness has been contacting contractors for requests for bids and plans will be submitted for the necessary renovations. Maitri Path to Wellness was awarded two grants to assist with the renovations needed for this project. The goal is to house up to 24 adult recovery residents, 12 male and 12 female.
Financial donations may also be mailed or made in person at Starved Rock Country Community Foundation, our partner in this project, office 241 Marquette St, LaSalle, IL 61301. If you prefer to make a financial contribution by mail, please make your check payable to SRCCF. For more information, please contact (815)252-2906.
