Safe Housing for the Vulnerable — With The Well CDC!
RAHAB is thrilled to announce a new partnership with The Well CDC (of Akron) to provide affordable housing to participants in The Oaks transitional housing program!
Thanks to this program partner, we are able to kick off Phase 1 for the 18-24 age group and provide safe housing right away — a part of the program in which we cover 100% of a survivor’s rent. This allows our participants and their case workers to establish long-term stability — things like securing a job, building life skills, and connecting with the community.
Because this age group is so new to adulthood, they often join our program with very few resources for themselves. They are in need of everything from housing, furniture, cars, jobs, and more. Yet all these things work off one another — and must work together for the young adult’s good: It is difficult to get housing if you do not have a job, and difficult to keep a job if you do not have safe, stable housing.
As each participant moves forward in the phases of The Oaks program, they will become responsible for larger percentages of the rent until they are able to fully support themselves. This allows for a healthy and stable transition into independence and lasting freedom.
We have had the privilege of moving our first young adult participant into housing already … and we are so happy she is now in a safe place. We look forward to walking with her as she gains independence and heals from the inside out. Thank YOU for being part of her journey through your support and prayers!
You pointed her to Jesus!
She was battling significant addiction and mental illness a year and a half ago when we met her …
She became a friend who began coming to RAHAB for help — to work toward sobriety.
We got to see her last week, and she expressed how much she has been enjoying sobriety, going to NA, and learning about Jesus at our Drop-In! If you could see her yourself, you’d know with one look this woman is happier and healthier than she’s been in a long time!
Our precious friend’s journey didn’t happen overnight, of course. It was a process. But getting sober is a huge step forward, and we are so glad she has decided to take that journey. We are also grateful she has chosen to include us in her walk of faith and healing!
With your prayers and support, RAHAB staff and volunteers get to celebrate all kinds of moments, big and small, with the vulnerable women we serve. May God bless you for reaching out to them in love — pointing them toward the hope that’s available in Christ alone.
Thank you again for partnering with RAHAB Ministries.
Your caring, compassionate support makes a tangible and eternal difference in the lives we’re privileged to serve!
