The Supported Living Program at Humanim assists individuals with mental illness in maintaining independent living within the community. The program provides a continuum of services to meet the unique needs of the individual. Services and activities are designed to assist individuals in improving selfsufficiency, increasing choice, gaining control of their lives and increasing participation in the community. The optimal use of natural supports; whereby each person builds their own network of supports are integral components of the Supported Living Program. Individuals will identify their community support network (family, friends, church members, selfhelp group members). Case Coordinators will collaborate with the person’s network of supports in planning and goal setting. Supported Living services are provided in the individual’s home and at various locations throughout the community based upon the needs of the individual served.
