S&D Enterprises opened a men-only home in the Parramore neighborhood near Orange Blossom Trail.

The CEO told Channel 9 that the house was abandoned and used by squatters and drug addicts.

During renovations, they had to board up the windows to keep criminals out.

“But there were people literally living here on the floors, or using it for their drug use, and things of that nature,” said Sharon Drivers with S&D Enterprises.

The CEO says they opened their first transition home last March.
