We serve individuals who are 18 years or older and who have been diagnosed with persistent mental illness or co-occurring conditions. Our programs welcome people whose behaviors have frustrated the best efforts of other care givers. We use evidence-based programming to foster new thinking, attitudes and behaviors that lead to positive personal changes, independence, maturity and self-responsibility.
Our goal is to help break the cycle of hospitalization and homelessness and create a path to self-realization and community engagement.
A team of trained and caring staff members at each residence helps residents learn to cope with the challenges of everyday living by developing daily living skills, maintaining counseling, obtaining education regarding mental illness, improving, and learning how to manage symptoms, with an individual rehabilitation and treatment plan. For many of these individuals, it is a major step to greater independence.
