Sober recovery home
for women opens
PUTNAM — Quiet Corner Cares announced the opening of Kasia’s Hope, a sober recovery home that will be available to women seeking a safe, nurturing environment.  
In April of 2019 Brigitte Jurczyk and Karl Kuhn Jr. had an idea to establish a local recovery home for women in the community.  Their idea has become a reality in a few short months.  Having lost her daughter to a drug overdose, Jurczyk turned her grief into a cause that would honor the memory of her daughter, Kasia, by establishing a local recovery home for women.  Karl Kuhn Jr. shared in the vision of creating a sober home, having experienced recovery in a men’s sober house.  Attributing his recovery to long-term residential care Kuhn said, “The recovery house I lived in after my initial treatment saved my life.”  
In October of 2019 United Services Inc. had an apartment house in Putnam that looked promising to QCC and was able to negotiate the purchase of the property at 79 Woodstock Ave. in Putnam.
With the help of a $50,000 grant Quiet Corner Cares bought the Woodstock Ave. property and establish its first Sober Living Home, in memory of Kasia Jurczyk.
The local community has responded with an outpouring of generosity contributing many of the necessities needed to furnish the home.  Several businesses and individuals have “adopted” rooms in the home and continue to support the efforts of Quiet Corner Cares to provide suitable housing for women seeking to change their lives.
