Recovery Housing Project For Pregnant Women Moving Forward
4/4/19 – 5:00 A.M.
Plans are moving forward for a new recovery housing option for pregnant women and their babies in Findlay. The facility will be on Crystal Avenue and will include three one-bedroom apartments and an onsite manager. Blanchard Valley Health System donated the land for the facility. They haven’t announced the exact location yet.
ADAMHS Board Executive Director Precia Stuby says housing is an issue for women in the Maternal Opiate Medical Support program. The MOMS program is a joint effort between Blanchard Valley Health System and A Renewed Mind. It helps pregnant women using opioids get off them in a safe way.
Local funding for the recovery housing will come from the ADAMHS levy and the Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation. The county commissioners approved moving $700,000 in levy funds into the ADAMHS capital projects account earlier this week. The state is paying for 75 percent of the project.
