On May 2nd, 2024, Our Hope hosted an open house of the new Walker Ave facility. Donors and community members gathered to observe and admire how their contribution played a vital role in the expansion of substance use services for women. "We are so thankful for the great turnout and for the opportunity to show off the new building," Development Director, Holly Natte, shared. "Our expansion 

would not be possible without our supporters, community partners, and the community. I feel so honored to get to be a part of such an important endeavor." 


Throughout 2023, this 22,500 square foot building received renovations, improvements, and restorations to make it suitable for inpatient residential substance use treatment. While construction setbacks lead to the initial delay of the opening, we are grateful the community had the opportunity to see our program thriving and the garden in full bloom.  


Executive Director, Heather Greko, and Co-Chair of the Rising Through Recovery Capital Campaign, Tripp Corl, expressed gratitude toward donors and community partners and provided updates on the expansion and campaign during the ribbon cutting ceremony. The  ribbon cutting not only represented the opening of the facility, which officially became operational for residential programming on January 23rd, but also the opening of a new service. Just over a week after the open house, our new Withdrawal Management Unit accepted the first client into the program. 


The next service Our Hope will work to open is Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient services. These services will provide aftercare support following treatment as clients transition back into their everyday lives.
