RS EDEN Women and Children’s Family Center Grand Opening
November 4, 2016, 1-3pm
614 East Grant Street, Minneapolis
With a reputation as a leader in delivering effective recovery services, RS EDEN is proud to offer a new space to house its Women’s Program. The RS EDEN Women and Children’s Family Center will provide a therapeutic environment for women in recovery that is safe, quiet, and family-friendly.
Located next to RS EDEN’s Men’s Program building at 1025 Portland Avenue, this site offers a space uniquely suited to women going through the recovery process. It offers rooms for group meetings, private rooms for individual counseling, a family bathroom with a washer and dryer, outdoor green space, along with stroller parking and a gym for activities.
RS EDEN’s Women’s Program implements a trauma informed, gender-specific treatment program. According to Lucy Versalles, Eden House Women’s Program Director: “Everything that went into designing this space was chosen with the women and families in mind—from the lighting to the room layout, from the gym to the cubbies. The family bathroom even has a changing station for infants and toddlers and a private area for breastfeeding mothers. Having access to this building will allow us to provide the best quality of care to promote healing and stability.”
The community has noticed the improvement. Lynn Regnier of Elliot Park Neighborhood, Inc. commented: “The community appreciates the work you have done. The landscaping is especially nice with the building updates and resurfaced parking lot too.” RS EDEN is proud to be a good neighbor.
RS EDEN is a multi-faceted agency whose mission is to provide a spectrum of care, recovery and support services to best facilitate individual, family, and community movement from homelessness to self-sufficiency. We believe that with structure, stability, and accountability, people can and do change.
RS EDEN is an equal opportunity employer whose mission is to provide recovery, accountability, and support services facilitating individual, family, and community movement from non-productive behavior to responsible, self-sufficient lifestyles.
