Storie Housing

Families Free serves women through gender-specific treatment utilizing trauma-informed care through intensive outpatient treatment groups, recovery skills groups, intensive case management, and parenting. Families Free serves women in four local jails utilizing evidence-based curriculums and case management services.

The Storie House is a private residence that can support and nurture five women from our program and up to four children, as well as provide a safe, sober place to live and integrate new life skills. This new addition will be overseen by Judy Clark, our Director of Women’s Services.

The home’s namesake comes from our Board Member Nancy Storie and is inspired by her generosity and dedication to the women in our program.
