The Family Recovery Program (FRP), a well-established community services nonprofit organization that provides critical support to families struggling with addiction has closed on the acquisition of a building to serve as its future headquarters in Baltimore City. FRP works in collaboration with the Department of Social Services and the court system to assist adults seeking to overcome drug issues and maintain custody of their children. Working with FRP, parents are more likely to complete treatment and retain custody, which in turn improves outcomes for families, reduces reliance on foster care, and lowers costs to the child welfare system.
In May 2023, NIIF provided a loan of $550,000 to support FRP’s acquisition of a vacant building located at the intersection of N. Gay and Orleans Streets.
“Having closed on the property, we are now embarking on a capital campaign to transform it into our permanent home and enable us to expand our critical services to the community,” said Dr. Jocelyn Gainers, President and CEO of the Family Recovery Program.
