On June 1st, 2018 the Umbrella Society opened Cooper House, a third stage recovery house for men. This sober living house is an available next step for residents from Foundation House who have completed the Ready to Rent program and would like to transition to a more independent housing model. With a focus on self-accountability and independence, this next step in recovery is providing an opportunity for a smoother transition for those residents who would like more support. Cooper house has less staff involvement in the day to day running of the house but the residents will be encouraged to continue to connect with the counseling and outreach resources at Umbrella.
Tj has joined the new residents of Cooper house so that he can remain with his favorite residents as they transition to the next stage of their recovery.
