The CEO of Providence St. Mary Medical Center helped with Wednesday's ribbon cutting ceremony.  The hospital bought this house and presented it to the Trilogy Recovery Community.  The house will act as a safe haven for kids who want to stay clean.

"When I started at the juvenile justice center I realized these kids don't have any support. they really want to stay clean and sober but they have no support when they get out or very little support so," says Kathy Ketcham, the Executive Director of the program.

Trilogy has offers community education programs, family support groups, and recovery support services for youth and families since 2004. Now there is a house on 515 Poplar where they can go for support group meetings and more.
