Supportive Housing Initiative

Community Reintegration

Our Supportive Housing Initiative provides housing and supportive services to Bergen County adult consumers ready for discharge from state psychiatric hospitals. We couple housing opportunities with wellness and recovery-oriented support services, which allow adults with mental health diagnoses to better maintain independent community living.
