Before the pandemic, the CDC estimated that 20% of Americans reported mental health conditions; in its wake, the estimate is 40%. For more than 300 of our most vulnerable neighbors who come from hospitals, shelters, and private homes Woodley House offers a welcoming home and caring encouragement. It provides residents with safe places where they can work toward recovery, with housing and support services under one roof. A range of options, from short-term residential crisis beds (alternatives to hospitalization) to long-term group homes and long-term supported homes, allows residents to live in highly supervised or more autonomous settings. Clients work closely with specialists to regain the skills they need to care for themselves (cooking, home maintenance, recreation), interact with others, and manage symptoms and medications. For those who have been isolated or ostracized, Woodley House opens up a new world.
