Teaming up with PACT Recovery Connection
Women United Porter County has teamed up with Recovery Connection to provide life skills classes and social events for women in recovery. These weekly classes include financial stability,
resume review, and even crafting lessons. Each member of Women United is asked to host a class every other month at the Recovery Connection office.
The goal of the program is to offer support to women in
addiction recovery who need to develop new relationships, hobbies and skills to thrive.
Since September 2018, Women United members have served more than 43 women through Recovery Connection.
