About Dawn Farm Transitional housing

Addiction treatment center with an emphasis on the recovering community as the most important source of healing and recovery support for their clients. Dawn Farm is a a 501c(3) non-profit organization. The original site at 112 Chapin Street was once a crack house 'one that was transformed in 1998 into a transitional home for recovering men. A simple concept was developed to help motivated addicts and alcoholics find recovery in a safe and sober environment. One house became two, then four, and over the years the Chapin Street Project has continued to grow. By 2010 the project included small houses and apartment complexes, housing more than 140 men and women each day. Each resident must get a job, attend daily AA or NA meetings, and pay a modest amount for room and board. In addition, all residents must do service work with other addicts and alcoholics, as well as volunteer in some other form of community service. Each house or apartment is a simple community that values sobriety and responsibility. The Chapin Street Project changes lives. The program includes: Residential structure provided by volunteer house managers who live on site and supervised by Dawn Farm staff. Additional therapeutic services are offered as needed in other Dawn Farm programs. Residents can stay from six months to two years. AA/NA attendance, required daily. Vocational referral and job training. Residents must obtain and continue full-time employment during their stay. Community Work, teaching Chapin Street residents about contributing to the community.
