Bridgewell’s Lotus House Family Supportive Housing Program supports women and their children who are transitioning out of substance use disorder treatment programs. The program supports them in building independent living skills, healthy relationships, and connections in the community, to reduce substance use relapse. The goal is to help the families living at Lotus House to live safe, self-directed, and productive lives.
The services provided at Bridgewell’s Lotus House are structured to provide case management and stability for mothers currently in or seeking recovery. Family supportive housing is a transitional program, but Lotus House will assist families in receiving the necessary education and services to find and retain permanent housing.
Bridgewell’s Lotus House is a three-story Victorian single-family home with 10 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The home has additional community space to engage families in onsite activities, supporting growth and development, and fostering bonding and attachment between mothers and children. A child service coordinator will also be on staff at Lotus House.
Families living at Bridgewell’s Lotus House will have easy access to additional resources in Lynn, including Bridgewell’s outpatient behavioral health clinic in Lynn, the Lynn Community Health Center, Early Intervention and the Family Resource Center, My Brother’s Table, The Salvation Army, and a food pantry.
