Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition has been awarded a $30,000 grant through the application process of the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation. This investment will enable the coalition to upgrade The Friends House to provide much-needed repairs, including the addition of a first-floor bathroom and extensive renovations to the parking area.

The Friends House, located in Rockland, is able to accommodate 10 men in recovery who need a safe, sober, and supportive place to live. The House provides an environment in which the residents spend time together for support, while establishing employment and connections to other local resources in the community that assist their recoveries.

“It is critical for people in early recovery to have a solid foundation to begin their recovery. Without providing safe, sober, and supportive housing, most people cannot make progress in their recovery and continue to struggle with complications of their addiction. We are so thankful to the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation for helping us to provide a safe and home-like environment at the Friends House.” said Iain Kirkham, house supervisor of The Friends House.

Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition is very close to reaching its fundraising goals for 2021. To help, visit midcoastrecovery.org or email info@midcoastrecovery.org.
