Hawthorne Safe Haven (3) DSC_0297 GardenBeds_06_26_13

Outreach services based at ShelterCare's Center for Programs and Services to provide integrated services to individuals and families with psychiatric disabilities living in housing owned or managed by ShelterCare as well as in apartments in the community.

Supported Housing within the greater community:

  • encourages independence
  • supports an increase in living skills
  • promotes a satisfying quality of life for program participants
  • speeds and supports recovery

These supports reduce the frequency and duration of hospitalizations caused by a return of symptoms. The typical resident of the supported housing program benefits from:

  • prompts to take medications
  • instruction in money management skills
  • skills training for daily living activities like housekeeping and shopping
  • individual and group therapy
  • assistance and advocacy with community service providers
  • mental health care coordination

Residents live independently, but program staff are available for support. Most important for residents is the reliable and consistent support and encouragement they receive from staff.

Supported Housing Programs are located at the following places:

  • Hawthorn Apartments
  • Signpost Apartments
  • Family Housing Program
  • Brethren and Afiya Apartments
  • Shankle Program
  • Scattered site apartments in the community
