Newborn Holistic Ministries, Inc. Overview
Programs: Martha's Place is a 6-month residential transitional facility that combines a communal home environment with a highly structured recovery program to actively guide 24 women each year in their complete recovery from addiction. Martha's Place also offers long-term SRO (single room occupancy) housing for graduates of its 6-month program. The objectives of Martha's Place are to provide a safe residential environment, to offer a supportive and structured recovery program, to select and admit women who are in need of transitional housing, to guide these women through rehabilitation, and ultimately to facilitate transition from drug-dependency to independent drug-free living. Martha's Place achieves these objectives through its established recovery program, the Martha's Place staff, and by established program partners.Martha's Place empowers its clients by utilizing structured house rules and regulations designed to help residents overcome their drug-dependency while simultaneously developing the skills necessary for independent living. This structure is vital for women seeking to live drug free, maintain gainful employment and housing, and reestablish custody of their children and relationships with their families. The recovery component of Martha's Place is achieved through rules and regulations that help residents remain abstinent from drugs and alcohol. These rules and regulations require residents to attend NA/AA (Narcotics Anonymous/Alcoholic Anonymous) meetings daily, meet weekly with the Martha's Place drug counselor, be drug-tested on a regular and random basis, and choose a sponsor.Critical to Martha's Place success is its incorporation of recovery with the development of independent living skills. Development of these fundamental life skills is emphasized by program rules and regulations that require residents to obtain employment (within 30 days), turn in paychecks and other income for Money Management, pay rent on time, attend all Martha's Place meetings and appointments, complete house chores, and cook their meals.
Newborn Holistic Ministries, Inc. was founded in 1996 on the border of Baltimore''s Sandtown-Winchester and Upton communities which have struggled for many years with major poverty related issues. Newborn has responded with a mission to preserve and enrich life in these communities by providing services that will enable residents to meet their material, social, and spiritual needs.
In 2000, Newborn established its first major program called Martha''s Place which is a recovery program for women overcoming drug addiction. Martha’s Place works to address extremely high substance abuse rates by offering a certified 6-month transitional recovery program as well as long-term SRO housing. All facilities are located at the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and Presstman Street in Baltimore, MD.
