Housing


Emergency Shelter

Shelter Residents stay overnight and are provided meals and the opportunity to shower and receive new clothing items. Shelter Counselors do an assessment with each resident, encourage and help residents apply for services and take steps to help them meet long term needs, and assure that clients receive emergency medical or counseling needs.

Recovery Housing

DRMM currently provides two types of Recovery Housing.

  1. For those in need of supportive services to address substance abuse and its overall impact on their lives, DRMM residents have the opportunity to be housed as they work towards stability — including education training and gaining employment. Additional available services may include: case management, mental health, and substance abuse aftercare. Follow-up is provided for up to six months after they leave to help them successfully overcome all obstacles to independence and stability.
  2. For those who have tested positive for COVID-19, we are currently providing a safe and secure place to recuperate before moving to our Emergency Shelter or another program.
