AFTER 7 MONTH FRACAS WITH CITY OF CINCINNATI, THE FIGHT IS OVER!
PRESS RELEASE / STATEMENT TO PROVIDERS
7 MONTH FRACAS WITH CITY OF CINCINNATI IS OVER – NEW FOUNDATIONS REMAINS OPEN & CONTINUING TO WORK WITH THE RECOVERING COMMUNITY TO FIGHT HEROIN OVERDOSE
October 14, 2014
Since March 2014 New Foundations Transitional Living has been involved in a dispute brought by City of Cincinnati over the operation of its sober living houses.
As a result, the Greater Cincinnati Recovery Board Resource Collaborative (GCRRC), concerned citizens and other organizations had some confusion as to the exact nature of New Foundations day-to-day operations.
A multitude of accusations were thrown upon NFTL by 3rd parties who simply did not know exactly what work is done at the largest transitional housing provider in the area.
We are thrilled to announce that New Foundations has stood the test!
After 7 months of working closely with the City and our Mayor, as well as prominent recovery organizations in our area, NFTL is excited and honored to announce that we have reached an agreement with the City of Cincinnati that will end the dispute.
New Foundations has always had one mission: to provide quality, modern living for men and women in recovery from drug and/or alcohol abuse in a structured environment. We have always put our residents first.
With the help from the City, our attorney and our supporters we have further cemented that deep commitment by beginning work with the National Association of Recovery Residences (NARR) to be a part of national and regional best practices which also put residents first nationwide.
New Foundations has been a leader in the recovering community and we are honored and ready to continue that role. We want to thank the City, our supporters, providers of recovery services in the region – and especially our residents – for remembering that our area is under siege from a heroin epidemic and that we all have to answer the call to fight it. It is encouraging to know that everyone involved worked hard to reach a conclusion that was agreeable to all parties so that we can continue our work.
It is a good day for New Foundations, for the City of Cincinnati – and for all of those who champion the work of recovery.
NFTL is alive and open for business! Our work is just beginning!
