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:
Support Services 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.
- 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
