WHO WE ARE:
New Foundations is dedicated to helping those in the community rebuild their lives by providing safe, sober, supported, and structured quality recovery housing to those who've struggled with addiction to alcohol or drugs. A lot of our folks come to us with nothing but the clothes on their back, without any funding, cell phones, transportation, or hygiene items. We are providing the home, the utilities, the resources to move forward, and most importantly, we are giving them HOPE. We strive to saves lives, change families, and impact communities.
OUR BIGGEST NEED TODAY:
The overall largest barrier to someone moving forward in their life at New Foundations is lack of support when it comes to transportation. Simple things like getting to the store, or their required four recovery meetings each week, job interviews, church, library, skills development, or volunteer/service work, is a huge hinderance and a barrier when someone is trying to move forward but lacking the means to follow through on every day tasks we take for granted.
We need folks with the time, tenderness, compassion, and ability to drive our folks to orientation, recovery meetings, job interviews, Walmart, Kroger, or any place they are trying to get to but do not have the means.
This can be a few scheduled hours, or specific days/times, or just whenever you happen to be available. All of our program participants are Rapid COVID Tested, pass urine screens weekly, and do not have criminal charges for sex crimes, arson, or violence. These are people who have lost everything and having a willingness to do better, which is why those chose New Foundations.
If this sounds like something you may be interested in, we would love to speak to you ASAP.
Thank you and God Bless!
About New Foundations Transitional Living
167 E. McMillan St, Cincinnati, OH 45219, US
New Foundation's mission is to provide safe, sober, structured, and supportive recovery housing to those suffering from substance use disorder. We have homes for men, women, veterans, LGBQ+, MAT, and those with shared custody of their children.
New Foundations has been around for the past 10 years, starting out with one home. Fast forward to today, and we have 11 properties across northern KY and Cincinnati OH. We have 240 beds combined. We are the only housing organization in our area to be NARR (national alliance of recovery residences) certified as a level II housing organization, which means we abide by certain standards that go above and beyond a typical "sober living". Mikella Chrisman took over in 2018 and she has completely transformed the organization into a place where true recovery happens by upping the standards for the program participants, providing a wealth of resources, ensuring no one falls through the cracks.
She also started the first MAT (medicated assisted treatment) homes in our area. It was not popular by traditional sober livings but that did not stop her. She believes everyone deserves a chance to change their life around, reconnect with their children and families, and be a contributing member of society.
We recently started a treatment track where we seek donations so folks that do not have funds coming in the door may do so as long as they are enrolled in an outpatient type of service. This allows them to get on their feet without being overwhelmed by 'life', and resort back to old coping mechanisms.
