‘Hope House’ to serve Rockbridge residents recovering from addiction

By Teddy Jacobsen

Rockbridge Recovery, a Buena Vista nonprofit organization, is planning to expand after opening last summer. One of its founders, Bobby Slagle, is developing a new program to house up to six men struggling with addiction and homelessness. He plans to renovate a vacant house at an estimated cost of $100,000. Slagle calls it Hope House and wants to open by the end of the year.
