8. Financial Assistance Programs

Herren Project Recovery Housing Scholarships, please place the following: Recovery Foundation financial assistance

Herren Project offers sober housing scholarships and recovery coaching mentors to positively support steps towards living a substance-free life. Recovery scholarship opportunities are available to those in treatment nationwide to provide financial and emotional support for those motivated to continue to heal their lives after treatment.

Approved candidates are given a chance to get back on their feet and transition into their new sober life in a safe and successful way without the immediate financial burden of paying rent right after treatment. Our goal is to support and empower individuals as they transition out of drug or alcohol addiction treatment and into recovery to help them establish a new, healthy lifestyle..
