Supportive Housing

Emerging from the Darkness

How Severe Mental Disorders Can Affect People

  • Impact a person’s ability to live independently, manage a household, or perform daily life tasks
  • Prevent an educated, capable man or woman from holding a job
  • Disrupt families and leads to the individual or entire family becoming homeless
  • Further isolate people from interacting with the community

How Concord Promotes Recovery

Concord’s community support services assist individuals with Severe Mental Disabilities by helping them to live independently with the highest possible quality of life. We do this by connecting people to:

  • Vocational and Job-readiness Training
  • Treatment for Alcohol and Drug Abuse
  • Transportation
  • Counseling or Psychiatric Services when needed
  • Supportive Housing that offers these services on-site and provides a safe place to live

How Concord Directly Assists People

  • Building life skills such as cooking, budgeting, and shopping
  • Applying for eligible financial assistance such as food stamps and social security disability
  • Accessing medical services such as Medicaid, Medicare, free clinics, and lower cost medications
  • Preventing hospitalization by helping clients create a crisis intervention plan before an emergency occurs

 

We help people with Severe Mental Disorders increase their engagement in the community by offering:

  • Opportunities for socialization
  • Peer reinforcement
  • Support for families

Permanent Supportive Housing

Concord provides counseling, community engagement activities, medication management, life-skills development, and substance abuse treatment to hundreds of people in central Ohio with a history of mental illness, homelessness or substance abuse as they gradually transition from a life on the streets to living independently. As a partner with the Community Housing Network, Concord helps adults who live in supportive housing find work, maintain their treatment and recovery, and eventually give back to the community.
