Her Story, Inc. is built on a Christ-centered foundation and is dedicated to helping women battling drug and alcohol addiction.
The Problem: Our community is in the midst of the worst drug epidemic in the history of the United States. Dayton Ohio ranks #1 in the nation for drug overdoses. There is a gap in services from detoxification to the time a woman makes it to a treatment center. For the resources that are available, there is normally a 30-60 day waiting period to get into treatment and the women have to call every week to stay on the waiting list. That is incredibly difficult for them to do when they are homeless and on drugs. Not only do these circumstances make it impossible to stay sober, there is also a high risk of human trafficking and relapse is almost certain.
The Solution: Her Story, Inc. is an emergency housing program for women who are seeking healing from both trauma and substance abuse. The priority of emergency housing is getting women off of the streets and connecting them to hospitals that will take them through the detoxification process. Her Story, Inc. will provide a safe and stable living environment for the women after detox and connect them to treatment centers with quality case management and services tailored to address their physical, mental, and spiritual needs.
