Housing and Community Support Programs
What Is Peer Support, Inc?
We provide peer support services to adults with chronic mental illness helping them to live successfully in their communities through our supportive housing programs and a community drop in center.
Our approach to recovery includes support to avoid depression and loneliness; educational opportunities to expand knowledge and understanding including medication effectiveness; volunteerism to encourage community interaction and acceptance; as well as fun activities that promote wellness. We raise self esteem and encourage self advocacy.
This peer run, peer support organization encourages and enables our residents and members to take control of their lives, voice opinions, make decisions, understand consequences, and realize they have the ability to change and improve themselves and their communities. All of our programs utilize peer support and focus on respect, responsibility and reasonable expectations.
Our residents and members are involved in organizational decisions. They have "house" meetings; and "member" meetings and all are a part of the Client Recovery Council with a voting representative on the Board of Directors. We believe self direction promotes recovery.
