The Elmira Salvation Army re-dedicated their halfway house Wednesday, June 15.
The Salvation Army house located on Division Street has been at same location for twenty years providing drug and alcohol recovery.
OASIS, the state’s oversight agency provided funding to update the house with a new roof, new boiler system and office space, costing about $85,000.
Major Craig Haggerty said the event is about giving thanks and continuing to help those in need.
“We don’t do treatment here but we do help people try to transition back out of the life of drug dependency into a life free from that one in bag to a more normal mode of life,” said Haggerty.
All renovations to the house were completed in February of 2016.
