Finding a safe and supportive housing situation is often the first obstacle faced by individuals following treatment, incarceration, and/or unstable housing. Most often these residences come in the form of a halfway house or recovery residence, which require a financial deposit upon entry. For individuals in recovery who do not have a stable source of income, a financial deposit is a barrier to receiving the support that they need during this crucial time.
Established in 2018, MDC’s Recovery Housing Support Fund provides aid to individuals who are not financially capable of paying the initial fee to enter a safe place that will further their recovery process. MDC has helped hundreds enter recovery housing by providing a one-time scholarship to cover their deposit.
