63 Washington in Camden Maine has a three century tradition of meeting the needs of women in mid-coast Maine.

On Dec. 3rd, Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition learned that it had ONLY 30 days to raise $160,000 to continue this tradition by opening a nurturing and healing Women’s Recovery Residence to enable women in recovery on their journey to healing and self sufficiency. Thanks to overwhelming support from the community, we were able to secure funds to purchase the house!

We continue to seek funds to support this program. Fill-in the electronic form below to help sustain this healing place for women in recovery and their families.

Substance use disorder affects nearly 10% of all young women in Knox County. Not only do these women struggle with this very challenging disorder, their families (including newborn children) find their lives in turmoil and instability.

Research has shown that giving these families a safe and supportive environment gives them the chance to get their lives on track. In particular, families are three times more likely to succeed in their recovery when the family stays intact in a positive environment such as a recovery residence.
