    Rochester, NH – HRCU recently sponsored two bedrooms at Abi’s Place, who just celebrated their
    opening with a ribbon-cutting on July 17 th . Abi's Place is a new transitional housing facility for mothers
    recovering from addiction and is operated by Hope on Haven Hill.

    HRCU staff outfitted the rooms of the house, the former rectory of St. Mary’s Church, with baby
    furniture including cribs and dressers, as well as, window treatments and handmade quilts and baby
    blankets made by HRCU staff members.

    Abi’s Place will be transitional housing for graduates of Hope on Haven Hill. Programs at Abi’s Place will
    provide personal support, employment training, health care for themselves and their babies, and
    continuing care for their recovery.

    Founded in 2016, Hope on Haven Hill is one of only two New Hampshire residential treatment centers
    for pregnant and postpartum homeless women in recovery for substance use disorders. In honor of Abi
    Lizotte, Abi’s Place will continue the mission of cultivating hope for new mothers in recovery.

    “The work being done by Hope on Haven Hill is incredible” said HRCU President & CEO Brian Hughes.
    “Getting to know Kerry Norton, the Operations & Development Director, inspires me and all of us to
    want to help in any way we can. Seeing the HRCU staff take such pride in helping to outfit the rooms
    was very gratifying. Abi’s Place and what it stands for will be a tremendous resource right here in
    Rochester.”
