Housing Services

Supported Housing

Our Supportive Housing program provides dignified homes for 20 people who are in recovery from mental illness. Our houses and apartments are located in Brookhaven, Islip and Riverhead townships. Participation in our program includes helping people achieve the highest level of independence possible with the skills and supports that will allow them to consider opportunities for higher levels of financial independence and asset development.

Funding for this program is provided by the New York State Office of Mental Health.

Housing Mediation

Our Housing Mediation program helps residents living in mental health housing to resolve conflicts with their roommate(s) and/or with a housing agency. We guide the involved parties toward a mutually accepted agreement with the goal of assisting people to preserve their housing. We offer workshops on communications skills, support towards resolution, and information concerning individual rights.

Eligibility: Individuals who live in licensed and/or state-sponsored mental health housing through the Suffolk County Division of Community Mental Hygiene’s Single Point of Access for all housing programs supported by the New York State Office of Mental Health.
