Staffed by a mental health worker, the open, five-bed residential unit provides clients with stability as they connect with the resources and services needed to achieve independent living. During their stay, clients participate in structured therapeutic activities between 9:00 and 5:00, while caseworkers provide support with medication management, appointment follow up, transportation, and other daily tasks necessary to successful transition. An ICS mobile team is also available for clients in need of short-term support services within the communities where they live. Aspire Health Alliance is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
