With Giving Hearts Day just around the corner, we at ShareHouse would like to take this opportunity to let you know that we are a participating charity! And right now, there is a need to expand and renovate our Recovery Reception Area at our Grand Forks location. We’ve had this location for a year now and are so grateful to help out more people in recovery throughout our region! However, it’s time we give the lobby an update, so we can better serve the patients who come through those doors.
Our current lobby is not big enough to provide our patients with the privacy and care that they need. Within the Recovery Reception Area, meals are served, patient medications are distributed, and new patients are admitted. There is a lot that happens in this space, and often times it gets too crowded.
The photo above is of our current Recovery Reception Area. We handle many of our patient interactions here; however, the space provided is too small to give our patients the privacy they need. With this expansion, we could allow for a larger patient intake area, more private medication distribution, and a more spacious food service area. Our goal with this renovation process would be to improve our overall patient experience, the functionality of the room, and offer more patient privacy.
Our patients in recovery deserve to have a safe space where they can meet with our staff and receive necessary medication, without feeling crowded. We know at ShareHouse that being in recovery from alcohol and/or drug addiction comes with its challenges, and it’s our goal to make every step for our patients a little more relaxing and nurturing. Along with that, we project that in this year and beyond, we will serve 175 adult patients annually. With that number of people coming through our doors, we need to have a larger space to welcome them and meet them with the care they need.
Going forward, our goal is to have all design and engineering aspects of this project ready by March of 2023. We would like to see the construction complete between August and September of 2023.
That’s where you come in. We need donations from our supporters to see this project through from start to finish. And if you have a heart for helping others on their road to recovery, we encourage you to consider donating to ShareHouse this Giving Hearts Day (02/09). Your generosity will not go unnoticed! The money you give will go right into renovating our Recovery Reception Area at our Grand Forks location! With your help, all of our patients will have a better experience and will receive more privacy and space during their stay with us.
Walking in the door is often the first step to recovery for our patients. And we want to improve that experience for them because we believe that Recovery is Possible!
