Residential Services

The Agency’s residential programs provide a safe and supportive environment allowing our residents to grow and achieve their fullest potential with the goal of living independently in the community. The Agency provides 24- hour supervised, transitional and permanent housing opportunities for single adults with serious mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorders. In addition, the crisis respite programs offer short- term stays in a 24-hour staffed setting to those in immediate need of temporary refuge from their current housing situation.

The Starry Night Café is a peer operated affirmative business that specializes in catering to the creative talents of persons with developmental disabilities. The program provides respite through supervised activities in a safe, stimulating, and supportive environment which offers numerous opportunities for people to use their talent and creativity while improving their social skills. The Starry Night Café also functions as a Drop-in Center during the daytime. The Drop-In Center provides a safe, nurturing and structured program designed to offer clients the opportunity to meet others, participate in recreational
activities, learn computer skills, become knowledgeable of other resources in the community and to have a healthy meal. The work of the Drop-In Center is geared toward enabling the participants to enhance their interpersonal relationships, increase their opportunities for socialization, and create stability and independence.

All services are provided by a multi-disciplinary team, using a strengths-based, recovery-orientated, trauma-informed and evidenced-based approach so each youth and their family have enhanced capacity to sustain healthy interactions, healthy emotional attachment, and functional relationships.
