Grace House is Foundation66’s female-only residential service. The service provides drug and alcohol free support for women with substance misuse problems and complex needs, including domestic violence, offending behaviour, sexual exploitation, homelessness and eating disorders. Specialist support may be provided by specialist partner charities and agencies depending on individual need.
Grace House addresses the gap in women's housing provision and is open to national multi-agency referrals. Our all-female team of drug and alcohol workers provides support through one-to-ones, group work and alternative therapies while residents are responsible for the day-to-day running of the house and aid in each other’s recovery.
Residents stay for between 12 and 24 weeks, gaining more independence as their time progresses, allowing them to develop the skills needed to live independently. In the final stage of the programme, the women move into a bungalow, where each bedroom benefits from its own garden.
