FLORENCE, S.C. (WBTW) – House of Hope of Pee Dee will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the first-of-its-kind Addictions Recovery Center, according to its Facebook page.

The center will be a faith-based, long-term residential program, the group said. The ribbon-cutting will take place at 3:30 p.m. June 8 at 404 W. Freight Road in Florence.

The facility will be a men’s only program, but there will be a program for women that is set to come in a few years, the nonprofit group said. 

The House of Hope has been serving the needs of people experiencing homelessness for more than 30 years through emergency and long-term residential shelters. The group is widening its focus with this facility by helping those struggling with addiction.

The public will be able to tour the facility at the ceremony. It will be the last time the facility is open to the public before residents arrive, the organization said.
