Recovery Hotel provides 20 units of permanent supportive housing for homeless men and women in recovery from substance abuse. Counseling and support staff are located on-site and Narcotics Anonymous meets in the lobby on a daily basis. Since opening in 1996, Recovery Hotel has served 255 individuals with a successful program completion rate of 83%. Now in its 20th year, the success of this innovative housing program demonstrates how housing, compassion, and support can transform the lives of individuals in recovery.
Please join us at Recovery Hotel (1225 Vine Street) on May 6th from 2-5 pm as we celebrate this incredible journey. We’ll hear from residents about their time at Recovery Hotel, including Donald Whitehead, one of the country’s foremost experts on homelessness. A former resident of Recovery Hotel, Donald is now the Manager of Outreach and Case Management at Healthcare Center for the Homeless in Orlando. The event is sponsored by US Bank, and food has been generously donated by Eli’s BBQ and Bakersfield.
