Creating a healthier community

Owensboro Freedom House expansion

VOA is a Kentucky provider of recovery services for individuals and families working to overcome substance use disorder, and its Freedom House program is a nationally recognized model for treatment and care of pregnant and parenting women.

At Freedom House, mothers can begin a new path to becoming healthy and sober and deliver healthy babies, while keeping families united with the assistance of trained professionals who help provide intensive care with a long-term, residential treatment program.

Christina Compton

Christina Compton is living proof that recovery is possible and Freedom House works. When Christina came to Freedom House to overcome substance use disorder she said, β€œI thought there was no future for me or my child.”  Today, Christina is healthy, sober and she and her family are thriving.

And Christina is more than a Freedom House graduate. She is a VOA colleague and leader, overseeing the admission department and helping women like her find more hopeful futures.

She has a simple message for the women she now serves every day: β€œI love you and I believe in you.”


β€œThese wonderful and generous contributions will mean life-changing care for Owensboro families. VOA is so grateful to the PNC Foundation and the Hager Educational Foundation for their commitment to the health and well-being of moms and children. We are thrilled to collaborate with PNC and the Hager Educational Foundation and so grateful for their dedication to the community.”
