Helping women in active recovery reclaim their future.
Our projected NARR Level II/III housing model is simple and evidence based.
We provide up to one year of supervised, affordable, supportive housing at Seed Sower Village - a residence for 10 women (currently under construction).
Residents of Seed Sower locations are immediately enrolled in our recovery pathway navigation program. It provides assessment and treatment management using the Advanced Recovery Management System (ARMS) to identify barriers to recovery and unmet needs as well as pathways to identify and build positive recovery capital over time using our “Measure, Plan, Engage” approach.
Inclusion of 12-step programs, mental and behavioral health, criminal justice remediation, community involvement and engagement, training and employment all come together in ARMS. This system integrates the 12-step recovery journey with behavioral health, life skills training, employment, and community engagement. It also provides round the clock access to Peer Recovery Support Services to help navigate the recovery journey.
Because we know just how essential safe housing is to continued recovery, we are already busy with plans for residents who complete the one year program to then move to more permanent supportive housing currently known as Seed Sower Flats. Seed Sower Flats will be apartment homes in multiple southern West Virginia communities that will be available for an additional four-years. The Flats are currently in development – projected to open late 2022 to early 2023.
In a garden, as in recovery, seeds do not take deep root in unhealthy soil. In rocky soil, they get carried away. In shallow soil, the roots don’t grow deep, and they wither and die. But in deep, healthy soil the roots grow deep and full, allowing healthy growth and life. Jesus speaks of this in the bible in his parable of the sower, referring to the condition of the heart and how it is prepared to receive. At Seed Sower, we both prepare the soil and nurture the heart so that the seeds of recovery can grow deep, healthy, and strong.
