The County of Summit Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health (ADM) Services Board provides financial support for local recovery housing. Sober housing provides a transitional living environment that promotes sobriety and independent living during the early stages of recovery. Oriana House operates Frederick Avenue Apartments in Akron. These 19 apartments each have two bedrooms; a full kitchen; are furnished, including a television; and house two people. The apartment complex is gated and staffed 24/7 by recovery coaches. Sober living resources and programming are provided.
For more information on Frederick Avenue Apartments or other recovery housing options, call the recovery housing liaison at (330) 996- 7730 or email SCRH@orianahouse.org.
Beginnings is a housing project funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The HUD program allows persons with disabilities to live as independently as possible in the community by increasing the supply of rental housing with the availability of supportive services.
The Beginnings project involves two locations; a new, four-bedroom house in Lakemore, and a refurbished four-unit apartment building in west Akron. Beginnings rental housing offers the availability of supportive services and is intended for very low-income adults with mental, emotional, and/or physical disabilities. Rental subsidies help make the housing affordable. Rental costs are based on a sliding scale and are generally 30% of the tenant's income.
Oriana House is providing the case management for Beginnings. Referrals will be accepted from social service agencies and the Mental Health Court in Summit County. For more information on Beginnings housing, call 330-535-8116.
