Mi-Co chose The Healing Place of Wake County as one of its featured charities in 2012. The Healing Place of Wake County is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) recovery and rehabilitation facility for homeless people with alcohol and other drug dependency. The Men’s Facility opened its doors in 2001 and the Women’s Facility began operation in 2006. The Healing Place facilities have provided more than 600,000 beds of shelter and days of recovery to homeless men and women at a cost of less than $35 per client per day. Remarkably, one year after program completion over 70% of the graduates from the program are still sober, employed, tax paying citizens. The Healing Place of Wake County is built on the principles of the highly successful Healing Place in Louisville KY, which received the 1998 US Department of Health Resources and Service Administration “Models That Work Award” in recognition of the success of the program. The Healing Place recently expanded its lease space by 6 acres and extended its lease agreement until 2047. The Healing Place of Wake County is a phenomenal organization that is committed to its cause, both today and in the future. Visit The Healing Place on the web at www.hpowc.org.
