This program helps those living with severe mental illness and/or substance use issues achieve their long-term goals, which may include
housing, learning how to live independently, avoiding incarceration and hospitalizations, and learning how to manage their illness or addiction.
Staff work with each client to create a treatment plan that includes goals and outcomes specific to that individual. Clients learn strategies to manage their mental health symptoms as well as obtain and maintain their sobriety. Staff also work to help keep individuals housed by conducting monthly home visits to ensure that their residence is up to code, coaching clients on how to properly take care of their home, and coordinating with landlords and housing staff to ensure that rent payments and lease renewals are current.
Our workers also help clients create monthly budgets, obtain groceries or food boxes, link to benefits, make/attend appointments for medical, dental, vision, legal, psychiatric, and legal services, and provide wraparound services as needed. Every year, CRT sees approximately 300 clients and accepts anyone, regardless of whether or not they are experiencing homelessness.
