Homelessness provides a significant additional barrier to recovery from substance misuse.  We strive to provide a sanctuary for those who can thrive in a welcoming and mentoring environment that promotes recovery and safety.

Located on the fifth floor of our 39 Boylston Street location, the Room to Grow Recovery Support Center operates to people who are in all stages of recovery and helps them learn to live and enjoy life on a new path. The center is a peer-based, member-driven community launched in October of 2019. Using a peer support model, we help members heal and rebuild their lives while also striving to eliminate stigma around recovery.

Room to Grow prides itself in being a safe, nonjudgmental place where individuals are supported in whatever pathway to recovery they choose. We offer multiple support options and educational groups for adults who are struggling with homelessness while attempting or maintaining recovery.

The Room to Grow, Recovery Support Center is open:

Monday and Tuesday: 6:30am to 2:30pm

Wednesday: 6:30am to 1:30pm

Thursday through Sunday: 6:30am – 2:30pm

All are welcome to learn about the center and membership.  Volunteers from the recovery community are encouraged to get involved.
