Our Crisis Residence is an eight bed program designed for consumers who are homeless and have psychiatric or psychiatric/substance abuse issues.

Using the Mental Health Recovery Model, our highly trained staff treats mental health/substance abuse issues and facilitates the transfer of consumers to longer care transitional housing programs, such as Community Residential Programs and Progressive Demand Residences.

Our dedicated team of psychiatrists, physician assistant, nurses, therapists and counselors provide treatment in a professional and caring manner that helps consumers take their next steps toward independence.
