(Green Bay, Wis.) – The ribbon has been cut and soon the restored home at 700 Cherry Street will welcome men in recovery from substance abuse. It comes as the Jackie Nitschke Center (JNC) expands its substance addiction services as the need continues to grow with the stresses of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The restoration and conversion of the home that had been used for office and therapy space brings the Men’s Recovery Home onto the Jackie Nitschke Center campus in downtown Green Bay. With a capacity of 12, the Cornerstone Recovery Home for Men is one of three residential treatment and sober living facilities owned and operated by JNC, which also offers outpatient treatment programs for individuals and their families.
“Our recovery homes provide a safe and healthy environment that supports those in early recovery, as they learn to sustain long-term recovery and transition toward living independent and productive lives,” said Michelle Pierquet-Hohner, Jackie Nitschke Center Director of Community & Donor Engagement. “We are very happy to bring this recovery home onto our campus and closer to the treatment programs and support that is so important in the recovery process.”
Key contributors to the Men’s Recovery Home project included:
- RODAC, LLC, the general contractor for the renovation project.
- Perfoma, architectural team
- WG&R, provided mattresses and deeply discounted furnishings
- Cornerstone Family Foundation
- K.C. Stock Foundation, Inc.
- Advocate Aurora Health Foundation
- Byron L Walter Trust
- Schreiber Foods
- Wells Fargo
- Greater Green Bay Community Foundation
- Green Bay Packers Foundation
- Brown County Crime Prevention Funding Board
“I can’t say enough to thank these community partners, and the many sub-contractors on the project, for everything they’ve done.” Pierquet-Hohner added. “Without their generous support, this project would not have been possible.”
