Founded in 1971, Interim House empowers women to recover from substance use and co-occurring disorders and enables them to pursue healthy lifestyles and find purpose and meaning in their lives. Interim House achieves these goals by providing comprehensive services to address each woman’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs. Many of whom have experienced such challenges as domestic abuse, incarceration, untreated psychiatric disorders, and have histories of trauma and abuse as children or as adults, or both. Interim House’s long-term goal is to ensure women in recovery become self-sufficient, productive members of society by acquiring and retaining a living wage job.  Interim House will use the Impact100 grant to address critical gaps in holistic substance abuse recovery by providing a significant number of participants with workforce education and experience in a trauma informed, evidence-based learning environment. The grant will support and expand its Life Skills and Work Readiness Program to increase each participant’s ability to gain employment through four key components: 1. Life and Employment Skills Training; 2. Academic Education and Computer Skills Training; 3. Job Training Programs and Internships; and 4. Employment Placement, Retention, and On-going Support.
