For many years the Lake County Jail has served as a “dumping ground” for individuals who suffer from mental illness and or substance abuse. Most of these individuals have been arrested for sleeping in a public place and failure to identify who they are when approached by an officer. A great deal of these inmates after release, are found sleeping in the jail lobby, public washrooms or outside in the parking lot due to limited housing resources in the area.
Planted Seed Ministries Inc. would like to lower recidivism and the jail population by offering permanent supportive housing and professional wrap around services for men in Lake County, Indiana that suffer from mental illness and or substance abuse. Eden House will offer substance abuse and therapeutic counseling to address the Opioid and Alcohol crisis in Lake County, Indiana. Your donation will assist with the renovation of an 6 to 8 bed group home for this population. Our goal is to raise 80, 000 to complete the renovation by December 2018.
