Dann’s House, a StonesHouse project, opened August 1, 2014, providing a permanent home for six people who had been experiencing chronic homelessness and who also suffer from persistent severe alcohol use disorder.
We have already seen tremendous improvements in our residents’ lives and substantial savings to the community in publicly funded services like law enforcement involvement, ambulance runs, Emergency Room visits, and hospitalizations.
Additionally, all of our residents have reduced their intake of alcohol, and all have seen improvements in their health. They support each other, cook together, take excellent care of the house and yard, and are known as good neighbors, including shoveling the neighbor’s walk.
Dann’s House is supervised 24 hours a day, with one full-time professional House Manager and trained volunteers staying in the house as a supportive presence, and helping the residents with activities of daily living.
In this season of giving, we hope that you will support this project, and help to provide a safe and secure home for some of our most vulnerable neighbors by clicking the "Donate" button on the left.
