CATHOLIC CHARITIES OF NORTHERN NEVADA REBOOTS SOBER LIVING COMMUNITY
‘Battle Born Housing Plus welcomes those seeking affordable housing and wraparound support’
(RENO, NV) – For over 30 years, Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada (CCNN) has provided low-income housing through its St. Vincent’s residences for those seeking a supported, sober living environment. Battle Born Housing Plus (BBH+) is a rebooted sober living community with substance use and behavioral care intervention services and an employment mentoring/coaching program that incorporates CCNN’s social enterprise programs through its St. Vincent’s thrift stores and St. Vincent’s meal services.
“Catholic Charities recognizes that there is a significant need for affordable housing with wraparound services, especially for those who need a sober living community and are seeking re-entry employment,” said Marie Baxter, CEO of Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada. “On July 1, we will officially open our reimagined Battle Born Housing Plus community building on our years of success in serving vulnerable individuals through residential programming and supported employment. This is a great opportunity for us to build new community partnerships with individuals and corporations who share our vision to address the root causes of poverty.”
The BBH+ campus has both a 44-bed congregate living space and 28 studio apartments. BBH+ will provide residents with resources and tools including: On-site housing, care coordination, access to substance use and behavioral health services, employment with peer-support-focused coaching/mentoring and other tools to help residents achieve long-term stability in line with CCNN’s vision to address the root causes of poverty by encountering and accompanying those living in poverty on a journey to economic equality and the realization of a meaningful and purposeful life. Residents of BBH+ are surrounded by a peer support network that aims to help them establish healthy relationships, a sense of community, and improved life, social and employment skills.
