Couch Street Recovery Homes Open
VOAOR received three homes from Multnomah County to provide drug free, supportive housing to women leaving residential treatment programs. We have completed repairs and welcomed our first residents this month. Women and children find affordable housing, counseling, job training, and community for up to 24 months. Look for an article on these homes in our Fall Newsletter, due out in October.
