‘NEXT DOOR’ TO OFFER TRANSITIONAL ASSISTANCE TO THOSE RETURNING FROM INCARCERATION

Written by Matt Davis on February 14, 2019. Posted in Uncategorized

Living Proof Recovery is working towards the establishment of Next Door, a house for women transitioning back to society after incarceration.  It will be Georgia’s first peer-based transitional home, says Amy Young, who has been tapped to serve as director of the program. 

Claudia Hamilton, Executive Director of Living Proof Recovery, attests that Next Door will have the capability to house 10 women; all will be housed on the basis of anonymity. 

Services to be offered Next Door are aimed at reducing the rate of recidivism, says Hamilton. 

Young believes that Next Door will offer hope to those who are preparing to open the ‘next door’ to recovery. 

Next Door is anticipated to open in early March, possibly sooner.  All official business for the home will take place at Living Proof Recovery headquarters, located at 408 Shorter Avenue.  Next Door’s location will not be disclosed in order to protect residents’ anonymity. 

Living Proof Recovery recently received $8,500 check from the Community Foundation for Greater Rome that will go towards Next Door, which is being completely funded by contributions from the community, says Hamilton.
