Freedom House receives help for residential treatment program

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A program offering help to mothers struggling with drug and alcohol addiction is getting help.

Freedom House on Shelby Street will receive a donation of $700,000 over the next two years.

The organization is a residential treatment program for alcohol and drug dependent pregnant woman and women with young children.

"With this investment we will expand our services to provide outpatient and intensive outpatient services to the women and children who leave our residential programs," Jennifer Hancock, President and CEO of Volunteers of America says. "No more will we have to worry about discharging our Freedom House women from our residential program without that step down level of care." 

The donation money comes from a major court settlement with the Attorney General's office in the Purdue Pharma case.

Freedom House is a part of the Volunteers of America network.
