A Walk on the Not-So Wild Side
There are many benefits to where Megan’s House and Erin’s House are located. Quiet, peaceful neighborhoods, off the beaten path but close enough to jobs, services and educational opportunites, provide a perfect setting for recovery to grow and foster.
Another benefit to our locations is proximity to the Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsboro State Forest, where tranquil walks through the many pathways provide opportunity for exercise and reflection, two more key components of the recovery process.
A common way to end a busy day at one of the Foundation’s homes is to talke a long walk through the forest, often accompanied by one of the dogs who are also an integral part of the young women’s recovery. In the accompanying picture, Mercy is along for the journey, though it’s just as common to find Jack chaperoning the young women.
The Megan House Foundation, and its residents are blessed to have these comforting homes, great neighbors and beautiful surroundings. One might say in challenging times, it helps to see the forest through the trees.
