The Edna House began in a small suburban bungalow with 6 residents and a determination to meet the needs of women suffering from addiction to alcohol and drugs. We have slowly grown first into a larger home…then two homes side by side, then to the Convent of St. Colman’s Church in 2006.
In 2009 we also added a single family home as Phase III of our program for women who have completed the initial 6 month program, but want the opportunity to extend their support while increasing their independence.
Even though we have multiplied our capacity 8 times over, our waiting list still hovers between 10 and 20 women at any given time. That’s 10 – 20 mothers, daughters, sisters and friends who are willing to accept help to escape the pit of addiction…who we are unable to help. Our goal for 2014 is to obtain a second facility on as large a scale as the St. Colman’s Convent that will enable us to give these women the help they so desperately desire.
Our first Annual Race to Recovery began the campaign to raise funds to see this dream to fruition. You can help by donating today toward helping create an opportunity for these women to recover. Please donate today!
