About

The New Bedford Women’s Graduate Program provides graduate housing and case management services. The program is located in a three-story structure providing three apartments that offer a comfortable, sober, home-like environment. Residents are assisted with developing support systems and recovery skills which enable them to successfully transition into the community and experience long-term recovery and an improved quality of life.
