Five years after the death of singer Amy Winehouse, a foundation in her memory will open a home for female addicts.

The half-way house sponsored by the Amy Winehouse Foundation will be called Amy’s Place, after the six-time Grammy Award winner and will house up to 16 residents. It will help the recovering addicts reintegrate into society, the London-based Jewish Chronicle reported.

Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in 2011 at the age of 27.

The documentary film about the singer-songwriter, “Amy,” won an Oscar for best documentary feature at this year’s Academy Awards.
