Meridian Health Services and Home with Hope Receive Grants from NCHS
LAFAYETTE, IND.—Meridian Health Services and Home with Hope in Lafayette received grant funding from North Central Health Services (NCHS) for facilities and programs to help men, women and mothers struggling to overcome substance use through recovery.
Home with Hope’s residents participate in a number of services and referrals for those in need of assistance in their facilities—a 25-bed Men’s Recovery Residence, a 24-bed Women’s Recovery Center for women without children and four apartments for women with children. Within the next several months, Meridian will be adding more services including a Maternal Treatment Program and expansion of the Men and Women’s Recovery Homes once the merger is complete.
“In 2018, the North Central Health Services Community Health Needs Assessment identified recovery services as an area of need for our community. During current community conversations and with the pandemic, we know that substance use is on the rise and poses a threat to the well-being of our community,” said Stephanie Long, President & CEO of NCHS. “The Home with Hope revitalization project aligns with the NCHS community strategic partnerships to support evidence-based substance use prevention programs and expand and enhance recovery housing.”
