Friends of Wells/Robertson House Program
The Wells/Robertson House program provides its residents with a clean, safe, sober, long-term (up to two years) environment in which to pull their lives back together, stay committed to a program of recovery and gain the skills necessary to become valuable members of the community. The highly trained staff, some of whom have successfully overcome homelessness and addiction themselves, have a "tough love", no-nonsense perspective that combines genuine caring and respect for individuals with expectations for residents to take responsibility for themselves. Residents are required to follow house-rules, participate in weekly house meetings, prepare their meals, do all housekeeping and maintenance for the house, and work on personal goals established with case management staff. The program helps residents through a combination of on-site services and collaborative agreements with other city and county social service agencies. Residents receive on-site addiction aftercare, basic life skills training and seminars on topics such as stress management, education, communication skills and meditation. In addition, residents receive budget counseling, set up savings accounts, are tutored for GED preparation, participate in a literacy skills program, job training and career development, and receive assistance with locating permanent housing.
