AN open day was held to celebrate the new Alabaré Recovery Community Home (ARCH) last Wednesday.
The new service will provide supported housing for vulnerable adults, across two houses in Salisbury.
Jonathan Martin, Alabaré’s senior chaplain, presented the house with a gift - a Bonsai tree - and then handed the guests paper, pens and envelopes and asked that they leave their well wishes and prayers for the home’s future residents, to help them start their journey with Alabaré with positive thoughts.
Andrew Lord, Alabaré’s chief Executive, said: “The homes have been the result of great partnership working with Wiltshire Council, with support from Public Health England. The homes will provide much needed accommodation and support.”
The new homes are based at the previous site of the charity’s mother and baby unit, which recently moved to another Salisbury location.
