While a lot of progress has been made at the structure destined to be a recovery resource in Starke County, there’s still work to be done before Hope Restored will be able to open its doors to residents.
Representative Nathan Radtke highlighted that this project is possible thanks to the time, talent and monetary contributions that people have put toward the cause so far.
Work-days are consistently held at the building, located at 504 Lane Street in North Judson. The next one is this weekend from 8 a.m. until noon on Saturday, December 14th.
Some people may be hesitant to assist with renovations due to a lack of construction experience but there are plenty of ways to help so volunteers of varying skills levels are invited to come out.
At the moment a lot of painting needs to be done, so that will be a task for volunteers to tackle. In the near future, help with putting in insulation will also be needed. More specific projects identified as the work progresses.
The more people who help check off the remaining construction-related items, the sooner the Recovery Home will be operational.
Hope Restored will be a faith-based transitional living environment for men recovering from substance abuse disorder.
The recovery home is expected to feature structured scheduling, therapeutic programming, required self-help meetings and drug testing as well as house regulations and biblical teaching and devotionals.
