Sal Pollino never planned to end up unemployed, homeless and addicted. But when drugs and alcohol took over his life, he turned into someone no one would want to be. Until he checked himself into a crisis center in Clifton Springs run by Finger Lakes Addictions Counseling and Referral Agency.
Now, after many months of treatment, first as an inpatient and then in a halfway house, Pollino is one of the residents in FLACRA’s newly-renovated house at 120 William St., Geneva. The house on William Street is one of four different sites in the area as part of FLACRA’s Rural Housing Initiative Project.
