Emmaus House IV: Moving Into The Future
Since 1987, Emmaus House has been successfully helping men who are struggling with substance abuse and need housing assistance. Emmaus House I is a transitional house for recovering substance abusers. Residents come to Emmaus I from a long-term recovery program, have at least six months of documented sobriety and are actively working on their recovery. Men may stay in Emmaus I transitional housing for six to nine months. Upon leaving Emmaus I, some choose to continue their recovery process in one of the other Emmaus Houses which offer affordable housing in a sober-living community of recovering friends.
Emmaus House’s vision for the future includes affordable, apartment-style, sober-living housing which offers the opportunity for our residents to further develop their independent living skills. Emmaus House has realized this goal by purchasing Emmaus IV, a triplex apartment unit on Lake Wheeler Road. Each apartment in the three unit building has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The building will house six men. Our current capital campaign to raise $400,000 will retire our mortgage on Emmaus IV, perform necessary renovations and position Emmaus House for growth in the future. Once an Emmaus House is mortgage-free, it is self-sustaining through rents collected from the residents. To make Emmaus House IV self-sustaining, we need partners to help us retire the mortgage.
