Sheltered Housing

Everybody needs a home of his\her own. Mentally ill people are no exception to this rule. Independent living constitutes a significant step in the rehabilitation process. Many people coping with mental illness find this step extremely difficult.

Our sheltered housing program aims to ease the transition from either the parental home or the psychiatric ward to a rented apartment in the community. Basic needs provided for range from finding a suitable apartment and room-mate to training and support in various aspects of daily living such as running a budget, cooking and taking care of the home.

Our program provides advice and help in coping with the problems and pressures of independent living and with the stressful aspects of exposure to bureaucratic agencies in the community.

Individual programs are set up to answer specific needs of members at a given point of time. Programs are flexible enough to accommodate changes in need according to progress or setbacks in the rehabilitation process.
