History of the South Eastern Family Project:

SEFP was established in September 2000 following an award of $500,000 from the Virginia Dept. Of Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services to H-NNCSB to support perinatal substance abuse treatment for pregnant women affected with substance abuse. The Program was established to serve women and children who resided in Hampton, Newport News, Mid Peninsula Northern Neck, Virginia Beach, Norfolk, and the WIlliamsburg area.

Residential services were originally provided through a purchase of service contract with Serenity House, Inc. located in Newport News, Virginia. In 2001, SEFP was moved to the Capo' Center for Women on Terminal Blvd. It is now directly operated by the H-NNCSB. The facility can accommodate 16 women.
