A faith-based non-profit organization, St. Matthew’s House provides housing and a food pantry to the homeless and those people who are struggling in life. Situated in Naples, on the beautiful Gulf Coast of South Florida, the center also runs Justin’s Place.
Set up in 2010, Justin’s Place is a co-ed faith-based affordable residential treatment center for adults struggling with substance abuse problems.
The treatment program offered by Justin’s Place is segregated into three phases. Male residents who are in phase I and III, stay at Wolfe Apartments complex, Naples. Residents in phase II stay at Port LaBelle Inn, situated in Labelle, Florida, about 60 miles away from Naples.
The dorm-style accommodations at Wolfe Apartments house Phase I residents. These units can house about 16 members; however, there are only 10 to 12 residents at a time. The rooms are furnished with twin beds. An intern or mentor stays overnight.
The Port Labelle Inn in Labelle is a functioning three-story hotel located on a 40-acre land. The residents are housed on the third floor of the building. Each room can accommodate either two or three residents, with 50 residents staying in the entire story. The floor has its own bathroom. The hotel conference rooms are used as a place for lectures, group meetings, and family retreats.
Upon completion of phase II, male residents graduate to apartment-style living offered at the Wolfe Apartments. The accommodations are provided in one-bedroom apartments and each room houses either two or three residents at a time.
Female residents are housed on the St. Matthew’s campus. After completion of 30 days, the female residents’ transition from a house furnished with bunk beds to small houses, which comes with room s that are shared by four residents.
Residents of Justin’s Place are served three meals each day. Residents of Wolfe Apartments are served food, which is prepared in St. Matthew’s kitchen. Fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats are used in every meal. Even though Justin’s Place does not accommodate any special requests, they do provide transportation to visit Wal-Mart if residents want to get additional food items.
Treatment programs at Justin’s Place last for nearly two-and-a-half years. The center uses Christian Principles and 12-steps as part of its treatment modality. Programs are gender-specific and are conducted in three phases.
Phase I lasts for seven months. This phase is very intense and prioritizes community and personal accountability. Upon completion of phase I, residents transition to the second phase, which lasts five months. During this time, residents shift to transitional housing and work at one of many St. Matthew’s House’s companies like a café, a catering company, thrift stores, and a car wash.
Phase II is designed to help residents learn ways to manage their recovery while they are gainfully employed. Phase III is similar to an aftercare program. During this time, residents continue to remain accountable, keep working, and gradually start living independently.
Staff at Justin’s Place comprises interns, program graduates, and Master’ s-level counselors. While the exact number of staff members varies, the center aims at keeping the staff-to-client ratio at 1:4.
Approximately $900 (county residents, entire program period); $1,550 (non-county residents, entire program period).
