Jackie Nitschke Center: Restored home leads to restored lives for residents of men’s recovery home

(Green Bay, Wis.) – As the need for substance addiction services continues to increase post-pandemic, the Jackie Nitschke Center (JNC) in Green Bay continues to look for ways to grow and strengthen its programs.

One major project is the restoration of a house at 700 Cherry St. to transition the Men’s Recovery Home onto the JNC campus. The building has gone through a complete renovation, converting it from what was once used as office and therapy space, to a home with a capacity for 12. The home is one of three residential treatment and sober living facilities owned and operated by JNC, which also offers outpatient treatment programs for individuals and their families.

The Jackie Nitschke Center recovery homes provide a safe and healthy environment to support those in early recovery, empowering them with time and support as they learn to sustain long-term recovery and transition toward living independent and productive lives.

“It has been part of our master facility plan to transition the men to a home here on our campus – closer to treatment services and support,” said Larry Connors, Jackie Nitschke Center CEO. “We are thrilled to finally be moving forward with this endeavor as stable housing and community support are critical to long-term recovery.” 

RODAC, LLC handled the renovation project for the Jackie Nitschke Center which includes an ADA accessible first floor, six bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living room areas, a full kitchen, and an updated heating and cooling system, while preserving the original decorative woodwork of this home that was built in 1895. The project is expected to be completed in late July or early August.
