This program is also fully-certified through the Department of Health as a Community Residential Facility (CRF). The goal of the Residential Housing Program is to provide a stable foundation upon which residents can build healthy and productive lifestyles. Residents also participate in programs of the Outpatient Clinic.
During the program’s period of 3-6 months (depending on the need of our neighbor and based on the indications of the clinical team), residents receive a wide range of supportive services. These include mental health counseling and treatment, substance abuse life skills, vocational course training, employment services, and ongoing case management.
Upon check-in our neighbor is given bedding, toiletries and clothes, as needed. No personal belongings are allowed. Assigned to a room prepared with adequate closet and storage space, orientation to their personalized program begins. We provide all meals, and residents join at designated meal times so as to encourage a dialogue and further promote a sense of community.
One of the main purposes of our residential program is to provide residents with a healthy new structure to their lives. Being responsible for keeping a set schedule, residents are empowered to account for their actions, which is wholly transferable to their daily life once back actively in the community.
