Foundations To Freedom offers comprehensive case management services in all of its homes. Each woman is assigned a Case Manager who assists them in all aspects of their recovery and daily life. Through an individualized case plan, the Case Manager can identify each client’s needs and determine which services will best aid them in achieving long-term sobriety. Services range from HIV and Hepatitis C testing and treatment to job placement and career counseling, addiction, mental health, and trauma counseling, medical care, getting medical insurance, childcare, and family reunification. Empowerment Halfway House is an essential resource for these women and for the community as a whole.

The Women and Children's Program at Empowerment Halfway House is a safe, supportive, and substance-free home environment that encourages sobriety and helps women ages 18 and up achieve their goals.

The program provides confidential services to both individual women and mothers with children, or those who are pregnant. Designed for women who are both stable in their recovery or just starting out with this new way of life, the program teaches life skills and provides a case manager who oversees their stay and works with the courts to reunite them with their children, if needed.
