Baldwin Women’s Residence:

 

What is St. Petersburg Free Clinic Baldwin Women’s Residence?

 

Established in 1989, the Virginia and David Baldwin Women’s Residence provides a safe place to stay as well as intensive case management to single women in recovery from substance abuse, as they work toward their goal of self-sufficiency. While here, residents build a strong recovery foundation, learn to manage their money, build life skills, and graduate to long term stable housing.

The residence includes a large commercial kitchen with teaching areas to show healthy cooking techniques, an open dining area to foster a sense of community, and training rooms to teach job-seeking and life skills. The 20,000-square-foot facility includes 40 bedrooms, allowing 50 women at a time to live in the residence.

The program has an incredibly high success rate, with many of the program’s graduates living independently in stable conditions one year after graduation.

Program Eligibility Requirements:

  • Must have 30 days clean and sober
  • Must be Employable
  • Must be willing to follow the 12 step recovery philosophy
  • Must have no violent or sexual criminal offenses
