As with any extended care facility, our clients are faced with numerous unresolved issues at the time of admission. Our clients are often homeless and unemployed. They are faced with outstanding legal issues and overwhelming debt. Many of them lack the proper identification such as a photo ID or social security card, which is necessary in obtaining employment. Many require follow-up psychiatric care for co-occurring disorders, medical and dental examinations but are uninsured and have no financial means to obtain these necessary services.
At the time of intake, new residents work closely with the case manager to complete a needs assessment and determine case management goals. Without the proper support services, most women would crumble under the weight of their “sober to-do” list. They find comfort in knowing that they have up to one year in a safe and supportive environment to “chip away” at their list of unresolved issues. We ask that they put all except their most immediate needs on hold until they have reached Level 2 status in our program which usually occurs within 90 days.
