ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Officials broke ground on Tuesday on a new facility helping mothers in recovery.

The Barrington House on East Ridge Road in Rochester will offer addiction treatment and housing for women and their children. This expansion, part of the Catholic Family Center, will be the first of its kind in the Rochester area.

“We have a lot of people in our community that have been struggling particularly over the last year and a half whether it comes to issues around drug addiction, housing, rental assistance, and The Catholic Family Center have been really at the forefront of providing these services to help people be able to get through one of the toughest years we’ve had in our com in a very long time,” Monroe County Executive Adam Bello said at the ceremony on Tuesday.

The new expansion will allow the center to care for 23 women and accomodate their children.
