Survivor House Fosters Powerful Community

In one of MACG’s domestic violence survivor houses, a resident (who needs to remain unnamed) relapsed in her addiction recovery and needed to go into a treatment program. She was living with her two children in the house and typically, in this situation, the children would have been placed in a foster home while their mom completed treatment.

In one of MACG’s domestic violence survivor houses, a resident (who needs to remain unnamed) relapsed in her addiction recovery and needed to go into a treatment program. She was living with her two children in the house and typically, in this situation, the children would have been placed in a foster home while their mom completed treatment.

A member of the house offered to care for the children, and the other house members agreed and supported her.  After making arrangements with the Department of Human Services, the children were allowed to remain in their home under the care of members of the house community, and experienced stability and continuity in a time of family crisis.
