Hope Center (IRTS)

Hope Center is a 16 bed transitional psychiatric group home. We provide Intensive CPR Services in an Intensive Residential Treatment Setting (IRTS). We serve clients with a wide variety of complex and co-occurring conditions and challenging needs including serious and persistent mental illness who require stability, assistance and support before they can successfully transition back into the community.

Our Mission

“To partner with the people we serve, their families, communities, and other human service organizations in providing quality behavioral health services and supports.”

Services Provided

We have a strong focus on Person-Centered Planning, providing an individualized supported living environment, gentle teaching and community integration.

Residents of Hope Center are encouraged to engage in meal planning, shopping, cooking, house meetings, family activities, structured activity in the community and community events. Our Residential Support Aides (RSA’s) are available 24 hours per day in order to teach, motivate, praise and encourage our clients as they slowly begin to regain the skills that they need to move on to whatever their least restrictive environments will be after they leave Hope Center. In addition to our RSA’s we also have a full time RN, CSS, RSA Supervisor and Program Director, LCSW.

Making a Referral

We work very closely with our referral sources and community providers in order to provide a bridge of continuity for all involved. Referrals may come from DMH, State Hospitals, Forensic Case Monitors, other CPR providers, guardians, acute hospitals, etc. Our goal is always to transition clients into the community where they have the most supports-wherever that community may be.
