Stable housing is critical to the recovery process. Coleman helps individuals find temporary and permanent housing to foster independence and build critical skills.
Coleman recognizes the direct correlation between housing and wellness. We offer specialized residential group living living design to help people integrate back into everyday life that supports their recovery and provides them a platform of strength on their journey from homelessness.
People who benefit from these services come to us from situations that include:
- Emergency shelters
- Domestic violence shelters
- The streets
- Transitional housing programs for homeleness
They often have experienced years of trauma, substance use, abuse and sometimes incarceration.
Our group home programs provides the wellness attention with behavioral health clinicians and nurses – as well as the structure of skills learning, chore responsibilities and ongoing therapy.
As dignity is restored, Coleman professionals continue to help clients build upon their progress toward independence with job training, housing assistance and more.
Transitional Aged Youth Apartments
Coleman’s youth transitional services assist youth and young adults with emotional and/or behavioral difficulties in their transition to adulthood.
A team of case managers, counselors, a child psychiatrist and vocational rehabilitation providers are specialized in providing services to transitional age youth. They collaborate to help clients achieve greater self-sufficiency through housing support (single unit apartments and housing placement), vocational and employment services, and social/professional skill building.
Coleman designed and built two facilities for transition-age youth. They offer stability to young adults ages 18-26 who have been homeless and diagnosed with mental illness or a co-occuring disability. Residents learn daily living activities including cooking, cleaning, leisure and money management, as well as social and communication skills. A house monitor lives onsite to provide support for residents.
