Residential services provide a structured, home-like, non-hospital setting with supervision on a twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week basis. Residential treatment ranges from Residential Level I to Residential Level IV. Residential Level I provides the most intensive treatment, supports and supervision. Whereas, Level IV only provides supportive services in as needed basis. Our system’s most sought out residential treatment services is Level II. Residential Level II facilities treat persons who have significant deficits in independent living skills and need extensive support and supervision. Admission to Level II usually follow acute care or long-term hospitalization. Less restrictive level of residential treatment traditionally follows a successful transition from Residential Level II.

GET INVOLVED

1. VOLUNTEER

We will be participating in monthly care kit drop off on the last Saturday of every month. This will not be your typical care kit although essentials such as food, water, and hygiene supplies will be part of the kit. Our goal is to reduce harm in a situation where one of our homeless brothers and sisters are suffering from substance abuse. We want to keep them safe just as we would want to keep our family safe.

 

These kits will include wound care, COVID19 protection, resources for substance abuse treatment, and clean needle exchange programs (amongst other local need-based resources), condoms, and Narcan. We will not just drop off supplies. Our homeless population is highly marginalized and discriminated against. They need our support, motivation, and attention. We will get to know them, listen to their stories, and share time with them when others will not. Narcan training, overdose awareness, harm reduction training, treatment advocacy, and substance abuse disorder education will be provided. Our end goal is to facilitate treatment at no cost and permanent housing.  If you believe in our cause and want to be our boots on the ground please click here to fill out this form.

2. NON-PROFIT COLLABORATION

It takes a village to help our youth, our elders, and our community as a whole. We are always looking to cross-collaborate with other non-profits that are similar in nature to the work we provide our community as well as organizations that believe in our mission. We are more than happy to spread your message too! The bigger the network becomes, the more awareness will be spread to those who need it most (form for this).

3. SPONSORSHIP

Are you a local business that strongly believes in harm reduction, community outreach, and overdose awareness? Do you want a better future for our community with less judgment, more resources, and manageable substance abuse disorder? Awareness gallery events, care package drops for the less fortunate and workshops depend on your support! We have a rewarding sponsorship program in place that will draw attention to your business while your business gives back! Please click here to request further info. 

*DISCLAIMER: We are not clinical therapists and only provide an outlet of expression to spread awareness and demonstrate to our youth that the art world does not need to go hand in hand with drug use. We are not a client referral program for rehabs of any kind. Resources listed are low to no cost.
