Description: VIRTUE House wants to provide shelter for women, 18 to 25 years old, who are continuing in their recovery from a life-controlling issue such as drug or alcohol addiction, an abusive relationship, or parole. We have found that many people who recover from these situations often find themselves with no place to go in order to get started on the right track. Unfortunately, many young women return to familiar surroundings and find themselves re-entering the cycle of addiction and abuse, rather than overcoming because they have no skills and no safe place to learn independence. VIRTUE House wants to not only house these women, but also to teach them life skills such as cooking, cleaning, managing their finances, getting out of debt and seeking employment or further education. Our hope is that by the time a young lady has completed her stay at VIRTUE House, she will have learned to care for herself, so that she will not have to return to a life of hopelessness and dependency on others.
