The Hancock County ADAMHS Board is getting $500,000 from the state to help build a new recovery house for pregnant women and their children in Findlay. The Ohio Controlling Board released the funds on Monday. With financing secured, ADAMHS executive director Precia Stuby says they are entering into a contract with a general contractor.

The more than 2,800 square foot facility will be at 2475 Crystal Avenue. It will include three one-bedroom apartments for women and their babies, as well as an apartment for an onsite manager. Women taking part in the Maternal Opiate Medical Support, or MOMS program will live in the apartments.
