Women and Families

Call (906) 228-9696 for more information about the Women and Families program at GLRC!

GLRC offers specialized services for pregnant clients and mothers and fathers with dependent children (up to 17 years old). The goal is to reduce the barriers between parents and the treatment that they need.

To qualify, clients must be enrolled and actively participating in a GLRC substance abuse treatment program.

Each participating client is assigned a case manager who is specially trained to provide counseling to women and families. These case managers can provide some access to:

–Financial assistance for housing, qualified child care providers, food, clothing and miscellaneous expenses incurred while receiving treatment.
–Transportation
–Life skills support services
–Referrals to community agencies that provide employment, education, housing and medical related services.

The Women and Families program is operated out of the Ishpeming Outpatient Services office, the Marquette Outpatient Services office and the Women’s New Hope House in Sault Ste. Marie.
