Andy’s Place in Jackson, MI is the first of several permanent supportive recovery housing projects planned in Michigan to address recovery holistically. Andy’s Place will offer 39 one-bedroom apartments for individuals referred by the courts along with a separate building with 11 two-bedroom apartments to house families. Research has shown that a key component to successful recovery is the restoring of families and the program provides the opportunity to keep families together in a safe environment. Rent will be based on income. Individuals without an income don’t have to pay.
Andy’s Place will also offer onsite supportive services including case management and recovery program funded and managed by the Drug Court and recreational and life skills programs, including financial health and employment classes, sober and wellness activities, a greenhouse, and an area to create music. The Community Action Agency of Jackson, the development partner, will provide job training and employment services through collaboration with local business owners and manufacturers.
