SERV as a benefit and resource to the community
Much more than Mental Health
Through our work we address a multitude of social issues including homelessness, hunger, housing, addiction recovery, senior care, diversity and tolerance, and educational issues.
Treatment that Works
Research indicates that mental health consumers are much more responsive to accepting treatment after they have housing in place. 1 Because we integrate housing with supportive services, SERV is able to achieve a higher level of success with a very challenging population.
The Continuum of Care
SERV provides a continuum of care that allows for varying levels of care and supervision. Consumers at SERV begin at the most appropriate level of care for them and, through recovery service planning and hard work, gradually move toward greater levels of independence. Throughout this transition back into the community, they are encouraged and supported by trained staff.
