Mission Statement

Amethyst Place supports women recovering from drug and alcohol addiction and their children, by providing safe, drug-free housing and individualized services to promote healthy families. We help families overcome significant trauma and develop essential life skills. The vision of Amethyst Place is that families will successfully transition to drug-free, independent housing and healthy community living.

Description

Founded in 2000, we provide housing in a safe environment (secured apartment complex) so that moms have a stable home to be reunited with their children. On site therapists help both moms and kids learn to be a family in healthier ways and education is a major focus for both moms and children with tutors and mentors provided. In 2017 nearly half of our residents entered the program without a high school diploma; by the end of the year 14 had their GED and another 5 were preparing for testing.
