A Focus on Rebuilding Life in the Community

Residents at Parents’ Foundation are adults age 18 and older who have psychiatric conditions such as schizophrenia, schizoaffective, bipolar disorder, severe anxiety, and depression. We are not a treatment program, but a mental health residential living program focused on our residents rebuilding their lives in the community.

All of our residents receive their psychiatric care from providers in the community. Residents and their treatment providers determine the level of care  that is appropriate for their mental health needs. New Haven offers a broad variety of psychiatric treatment options including psychiatrists, psychologists and licensed therapists, intensive outpatient programs, and cutting-edge research programs. The case managers and residential staff at Parents’ Foundation work closely with the resident, the family, and treatment providers to support each resident’s participation in treatment.

Three Levels of Supported Residential Living

At Parents’ Foundation, residents have the ability to transition to greater levels of independence and responsibility. Residents start at our Residential Living Center, which offers the highest level of supervision and support. As they progress, they have the option to move to supervised apartments within the residence.  Some residents may then transition to their own apartments within the community and still receive support services at Parents’ Foundation.

Many Choices for Mental Health Recovery and Enrichment

Residents at Parents’ Foundation participate in our Recovery and Enrichment Program. Designed specifically for adults with psychiatric issues, the program offers independent skill building, recreational, and pre-vocational activities. New Haven, a beautiful New England city, provides our residents with a wealth of community resources and activities. Many are within walking distance or accessible by public transportation. These include:

  • Courses at local colleges
  • Community volunteering opportunities
  • Local employment
  • A psychosocial rehab clubhouse model program
  • Shopping, theaters, museums, sporting events, coffee shops and restaurants
