We are making a house into a much needed home! Emmanuel United Church is converting its duplex into a dry house for women recovering from substance abuse. This will be the first such home in Waterloo Region, and one of the first in Ontario. There is a specific unmet need in our region for transitional dry housing. Individuals struggling with addictions have greater barrier in finding a place to live. There are currently very few dry house options available, with none of these dedicated to serving women who have graduated from treatment. Financial circumstances often force them into rooming houses where they may be surrounded by drugs and alcohol. Vera's Place will help to correct this problem as our old house becomes a new home. Let's build it together! Learn more at
