Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Paradise Opportunities strives to help women with drug addictions find a new way of life for themselves and their children, by first providing the women themselves with a structured, family-style home complete with anti-drug and support services, and later providing them and their children transitional supervised housing. Our women can then return to independent living as capable and useful members of the community.
Women who have been released from jail, prison or drug rehab programs and have no place to go are offered shelter at Paradise House and the benefits of its programs. They are given the chance to live in a family-style environment, under caring supervision, for a minimum of three months. Paradise House affords a clean, secure, friendly and supportive environment for homeless or otherwise drug-addicted women.
When they have transitioned into more independent living in the apartments we provide, and have their children with them, they and their children continue to receive support and service until they are ready to be on their own.
The programs and support services Paradise House provides are the necessary encouragement and direction for drug-addicted women to recover from their addictions and reestablish their families. Further, Paradise Opportunities works with neighborhood, community, city and state representatives to ensure that our women and children receive the services they need to live independent, healthy and drug-free lives
We also work to transform our urban locale on Mills Street into a healthy, productive, crime-free neighborhood so that every child will have the opportunity to realize his or her utmost potential. We hope to be a model for other communities on the East Side.
