Mental Health Programs
Community Hope’s first residential program was designed specifically for young adults. It offered a safe haven where counselors could help individuals in their late teens and early twenties readapt to community and family life after a psychiatric hospitalization.

Today, our Young Adult Programs include:

  • A community residence with 24-hour on-site staff support to enhance the recovery of 18-to-24-year olds.

  • Transitioning-to-Independence Apartments where young adults progressing in their recovery can gain self-sufficiency.

  • A partnership with New Jersey’s Department of Children and Families to serve young adults aging out of the foster care system and support them in their recovery from mental illness.

Support Services include:

  • Daily Living Assistance – Counselors teach the daily living and social skills essential to living within a home and a community.

  • Case Management – Linkage to behavioral health and medical care and community based services ensures a continuum of care and quality support.

  • Medication Monitoring – For most of our residents, medication is crucial to recovery and daily functioning. Staff monitor medications, educate residents about the need for prescribed drugs and coordinate medical appointments.

  • Crisis Intervention – In the event of a relapse, our crisis intervention team helps the individual minimize or avert hospitalization.

  • Social Skills Enhancement - Counselors work with our young residents who have been hospitalized or living in foster care to enhance their social skills and self-esteem in social settings.

  • Recreational and Social Activities - Our staff organize and involve our young adult residents in regular recreational activities that promote socialization and healthy life style choices.

  • Transportation Services
