Washington, DC, September 18, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- On September 16th, 2015, the first family for the new Women with Children program arrived at the Clark Inn, located at 1422 Harvard Street NW. Last week, they received their accreditation from the District of Columbia’s Department of Behavioral Health.
The new Women with Children Program will create a safe home where mothers recovering from substance abuse can receive treatment and family services while establishing a foundation for long-term independent living.
Addicted mothers, along with their dependent children, are one of the greatest underserved populations in the District of Columbia; there are nearly a thousand homeless families, of which half are headed by addicted mothers, and there are thousands more who are at risk of being homeless as a result of substance abuse. With the launch of this new program, Samaritan Inns looks to address those needs and build a better future for families who are battling addiction.
