If you need a place to stay while you get back on your feet, the Soldier On Women’s Program is here to help.
We are a wellness program that takes into account a woman’s mind, body, and spirit. As well as providing transitional housing in Northampton, Massachusetts, we offer groups and activities that teach you new skills, support self-care, and help you move your life forward in a positive way. In fact, involvement with the residential community is one of the foundations of the program and is required.
Here are a few other requirements and expectations of the women’s program you should know about before you apply:
– You must agree to undergo detox if deemed necessary, before admission to the program; commit to abstinence while in the program; access therapy, treatment, and wellness opportunities provided by Soldier On, the VA, and/or the community, in accordance with case management and resident input and desires; participate in weekly House Meetings; and perform household chores in line with your capabilities.
– In order to qualify for the program, you must be psychiatrically stable enough so that psychiatric symptoms do not interfere with participation in community events; medically stable and capable of medical self-management; and able to function in a group setting; and independent in self-care.
– There is a monthly program fee of 30% of your income, up to $400 per month. If you have no income, you must agree to do 16 hours per month of community service.
– It’s important that you are not recuperating from major surgery or medical complications and that you are not in immediate need of surgery.
· Unfortunately, we have limited storage at our Northampton, MA location, so we ask residents to limit their belongings to 3 bags, suitcases, or totes. If you have a lot of personal belongings, you’ll need to store them somewhere before coming into the program.
