SHAWL (Support for Harbor Area Women’s Lives) is a residential recovery program comprised of three facilities that provide temporary housing and supportive services for women.
SHAWL Women’s House is a six-month residential recovery program for 13 homeless, addicted women who are survivors of Domestic Violence. SHAWL provides comprehensive services and treatment in a warm and supportive atmosphere for women who are attempting to end their addiction, live a life free from violence and become self-sufficient. SHAWL provides the structure and support in a nurturing residential setting. The program provides the residents with opportunities, information and confidence to remain drug and alcohol free. SHAWL gives the women an opportunity to improve their life and educational skills, time to explore destructive behavior patterns and learn new decision making skills in order to work toward stability as well as independence in their lives.
Haviland House is a transitional housing facility that aids women as they are transitioning from the primary 6-month program.
