Supportive Housing at Casa Esperanza provides a safe and sober living environment that promotes continued recovery and the development of independent living skills for residents. Casa Esperanza operates various types of permanent supportive housing, including: Nueva Vida, a 15-resident single-room occupancy facility, Dunmore Place & 300 Eustis Street, 8 modern units, designed for families with children, and Nueva Esperanza, 14 new studio units for single individuals opened in November 2011.
Like the Residential Programs, the Supportive Housing Program is based on the integration of the 12-Step philosophy of recovery alongside evidence-based practices. The goal of Supportive Housing is to help residents become self-sufficient through employment and return to family and community life. Services Include:
- Counseling and Case Management, designed to assist residents in meeting critical health, rehabilitative and other personal/life goals, while assisting each resident in meeting four overarching goals: maintaining sobriety/recovery; gaining residential stability; increasing their skills and income, and obtaining a greater level of self-sufficiency.
- Referrals to agencies, such as the BHA, for permanent housing program to assist residents with alternative housing arrangements upon leaving the program.
- Referrals to Relapse Prevention & Outpatient Services located within one block of the residences
- Training in activities of daily living, such as financial management, meal preparation and nutrition, personal hygiene and fitness, personal and fire safety, household management, and conflict resolution skills that will help residents to maintain permanent housing
- Addressing resident concerns through referrals to primary health services, substance abuse outpatient counseling, medical and dental services, HIV testing and counseling, vocational and job counseling, and educational services.
