Victory Programs - Victory House

Victory Programs’ mission is to open doors to recovery, hope and community to individuals and families facing homelessness, addiction, or other chronic illnesses. Through housing and support services Victory Programs’ goal is to provide the individuals and families they serve with the tools needed to support healthy and self-sufficient lives. Though the support of loyal and caring donors, they have been able to provide more than just a “bed” for those living in one of its 17 programs. The Art Connection has placed art within 7 of these programs. In each, art helps create a therapeutic environment and stimulates conversation among those who would otherwise have nothing in common.

The latest placement from The Art Connection was at Victory House, a residential treatment program for men dealing with substance use disorders located in the South End on 566 Mass Ave. The 4 to 8 month provides residents with a bridge between treatment and re-integration into community living as they move through their own recovery. Art will hang in common areas, hallways, and stairwells making this unique recovery facility into a more cozy and vibrant home away from home.
