In 1997, the Council purchased the home adjacent to its main site on South Union Street in Olean. The 6-bed residence is designed to house women who have successfully completed an alcohol and/or drug treatment program and their children. Wendy's House is named in memory of Wendy Sue Axleson whose life was cut short in the prime of her life by a drunk driver.

Wendy's House
Wendy's House provides a safe and sober environment to continue the recovery work begun in the previous treatment program. Through case management, residents learn to develop the tools necessary for a safe and successful transition back into permanent housing. They receive structured addiction treatment in order to sustain sobriety, coordinate family reunification, and ensure the parent's long term ability to maintain custody, housing and financial independence.
