Supportive Housing for Women and Children

One of the most important elements of continued recovery after Wayside is securing a safe place to call home.

Wayside’s Supportive Housing program provides a safe, affordable, and independent living option for single women and women and their children as they transition from treatment back into the community.

“I still have my acceptance letter to Wayside Supportive Housing. After treatment, I knew I had to get into their supportive housing because it was the only way I was going to stay sober and be a part of my son’s life. I needed all of it, the stability, the community meeting, the coaching, the apartment inspections, the random UA’s. I have now been sober for three and a half years.” – Laura G.
