Jan. 15, 2011 - PRLog -- Raleigh— On a cold, winter morning on January 15, 2001 the Men’s Facility at The Healing Place of Wake County opened its doors and welcomed the first of hundreds of men and women that have sought shelter from the elements and began a journey for a new life through The Healing Place recovery and rehabilitation programs.  Today, The Healing Place is launching a series of events throughout the year that will highlight this anniversary. In addition, alumni, staff, volunteers and supporters are also celebrating the fifth year anniversary of the Women’s Facility in 2011.

The anniversary events planned include:

Saturday, January 15, 2011***10 Year Anniversary Open House 2 PM-5PM***Men's Facility

Thursday, January 20, 2011***Transitional and Anniversary Ceremony, 6PM**Women's Facility

As one former client stated, “The program at The Healing Place saved my life and allowed me to reunite with my family. This anniversary celebration not only allows me to personally say thank you to The Healing Place, it allows all of us to celebrate the positive impact this program continues to have on our community. Without The Healing Place, there would simply be more homeless individuals on our streets.”

About The Healing Place

The Healing Place of Wake County is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) recovery and rehabilitation facility for homeless people with alcohol and other drug dependency. The Men’s Facility opened its doors in 2001 and the Women’s Facility began operation in 2006. The Healing Place facilities have provided more than 500,000 beds of shelter and days of recovery to homeless men and women at a cost of less than $30 per client per day. Remarkably, one year after program completion over 65% of the graduates from the program are still sober, employed, tax paying citizens. The Healing Place of Wake County is built on the principles of the highly successful Healing Place in Louisville KY, which received the 1998 US Department of Health Resources and Service Administration “Models That Work Award” in recognition of the success of the program.
