    • April 28, 2003

In 2001, Newborn Holistic Ministries trained staff and improved operations at Martha's Place, a residential recovery program for women addicted to drugs.

Key Results

  • Martha's Place staff revised the resident selection process to improve resident selection and help applicants gain a clearer understanding of the program's expectations.
  • Martha's Place staff revised the Handbook for Martha's Place Residents, more clearly conveying the structure of Martha's Place and the requirements for residency.
  • Newborn purchased a two-story building across the street from Martha's Place to serve as office space, establishing effective boundaries between residents and staff.
