AFTER THE RAIN OF SW FLORIDA INC
AFTER THE RAIN OF W FLORIDA, INC. is one of the few half way houses in Fort Myers to assist women in recovery from addictions, homelessness and domestic violence. The Program is designed to provide women with an intimate, supportive, loving home-like environment while maintaining structure and discipline as they journey through recovery becoming self-sufficient and independent. Unique in our approach, both the Director and her Assistant live on site, availing the women a combined total of nearly 30 years of recovery experience.
AFTER THE RAIN OF W FLORIDA, INC began with the vision of Beverly (Duncan) Johnson, who is a life long Lee County resident and member of Mount Olive African Methodist Episcopal Church. Beverly has been committed to providing shelter and a safe structured environment for women who have found themselves with no place to turn due to various issues including: substance abuse, domestic violence, incarceration and the absence of basic life skills. Through her own recovery, which encompasses over twenty years of tireless service in our community, Beverly has partnered with numerous individuals and organizations who share her vision. The realization of this vision took substance with the incorporation of AFTER THE RAIN OF W FLORIDA, INC. on July 14, 2005.
