CoRR expands transitional housing

Community Recovery Resources (CoRR) has announced the opening of their newest transitional home in Auburn for women and children. CoRR’s “Clean And Sober Transitional Living Environment,” known as CASTLEs, provide safe supportive housing to women and children, and men as they recover from addiction to alcohol and other drugs.

This will be CoRR’s ninth home throughout Placer and Nevada County, following recent openings of homes for single men and single women, also in Auburn. The newest home will complement CoRR’s Auburn Campus, which also offers residential treatment and outpatient services for teens and adults, including the Mothers in Recovery program, which provides treatment specific to pregnant and parenting women, including childcare in their child development center. While participating in outpatient services, residents enjoy a safe housing option as they build a strong foundation of long term recovery.

Relationships strengthen the foundation of recovery as transitional housing residents create a clean living environment and engage in peer-related programs that encourage team work and a sense of community. Transitional housing residents build connections and gain control of their lives through the guidance of a structured outpatient program.

A list of housing items currently needed include three portable cribs/pack-n-plays, one large toy chest, two toddler beds with mattresses, pots, pans, cooking utensils, eating utensils, glassware, plastic cups, coffee cups, coffee pot, bath and kitchen towels, cleaning supplies, toilet paper and laundry detergent.
