ASAC has two long term transitional housing programs that target low income individuals and families in recovery from substance abuse: The Way Home and ND Housing.
The Way Home is a 24-unit apartment complex located at 5480 Kirkwood Blvd in Cedar Rapids. The campus includes a program building and two apartment buildings with a total of sixteen 2-bedroom and eight 3-bedroom apartments which rent for $640 and $760 respectively.
ND Housing, located at 2733 S. 19th Street in Clinton, is a ten unit alcohol and drug free apartment building which consists of six 2- bedroom units and four 3-bedroom units. The current rent for a 2-bedroom apartment is $591 and a 3 bedroom rents for $758.
For both sites, each apartment is furnished with all major appliances, including a stove, refrigerator, microwave, washer, dryer, and dishwasher and rent include utilities. The two housing programs also provide a playground area for supervised children and their families, a community room for social gatherings and activities, a computer center, and on-site supportive services such as substance abuse counseling, life skills classes, and support groups. There is also a tenant council that represents the community in providing program feedback.
The Way Home and ND Housing provide safe, affordable housing devoted to the choice of recovery. They are places where families are nurtured, goals can be reached and the strength of self-sufficiency is gained through hard work, respect, and maintaining personal integrity.
