GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – A newly-restored home in Green Bay will welcome men in recovery from substance abuse at the Jackie Nitschke Center.
According to officials, the building was used for office and therapy space before being renovated and converted to a recovery home. Now that the ribbon has been cut, the Men’s Recovery Home is brought onto the Jackie Nitschke Center campus.
The building will reportedly have a capacity of 12 and is located at 700 Cherry Street.
“Our recovery homes provide a safe and healthy environment that supports those in early recovery, as they learn to sustain long-term recovery and transition toward living independent and productive lives,” said Michelle Pierquet-Hohner, Jackie Nitschke Center Director of Community & Donor Engagement.
The Jackie Nitschke Center says there were twelve key contributors to the Men’s Recovery Home project including:
- RODAC, LLC, the general contractor for the renovation project
- Peforma, architectural team
- WG&R, provided mattresses and deeply discounted furnishings
- Cornerstone Family Foundation
- K.C. Stock Foundation, Inc.
- Advocate Aurora Health Foundation
- Byron L Walter Trust
- Schreiber Foods
- Wells Fargo
- Greater Green Bay Community Foundation
- Green Bay Packers Foundation
- Brown County Crime Prevention Funding Board
