The Indiana Women’s Affordable Housing Network (iWAHN) created “Welcome Home” baskets for women preparing to start a new chapter with Dove Recovery House and Seeds of Hope. The “Welcome Home” baskets will serve as a jumping off point for the women graduating from Dove Recovery House and Seeds of Hope programs. The graduates will be given fresh towels, bed linens, dishes, pots and pans, hygiene products, laundry basket, and more to have a fresh start in recovery.
Baskets were packed at the Bottleworks Hotel on September 15th by a group of iWAHN volunteers. Approximately 80 baskets were delivered to Dove Recovery House and Seeds of Hope.
Indiana WAHN is a networking group created to advance cooperation and opportunities in affordable housing around the state of Indiana.

Dove Recovery House is the largest recovery housing program for women in Marion County and is certified as a Level IV Recovery Residence through Indiana Alliance for Recovery Residences. Dove House serves 40 women each night and more than 80 women annually. In 2020, 70.5% of clients successfully completed the Dove House program or were on track to complete in 2021. At Dove House, we serve the most vulnerable women in our community—women who have experienced physical, emotional, and sexual abuse; women who have experienced homelessness; women who are struggling with substance use disorder and have nowhere else to turn.
Seeds of Hope, located on the near-Westside of Indianapolis, IN, offers a unique addiction recovery program for women over the age of 18. Seeds of Hope is not just a “house” they live in; it is a “home” that offers a loving, family-like environment in which our ladies can begin to build new sober and responsible lives for themselves. We provide our residents with an environment that inspires change through a dynamic support system. We offer a safe, clean, secure environment in which they are surrounded with caring individuals who have “been there” and are a testament to the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle.
