Shelter Cove is a transitional housing program for 32 homeless adults living with psychiatric disabilities. Located in Marina, the two-year program is designed to help residents learn the skills they will need to successfully transition to independent living.
Shelter Cove staff provide case management, mental health counseling and group therapy to residents. Residents are given a choice of participating in groups, pursuing educational goals, attending vocational training, obtaining employment, or a combination of these options.
Shelter Cove has seven 4-bedroom units and two 2-bedroom units. Residents have private bedrooms and share the common living areas. Participants are expected to pay 30 percent of their income as rent.
Participants are required to manage their own medications, prepare their own breakfasts, lunches and dinners, do their own shopping, budgeting, and laundry, and to care for their own units.
Sandy Shores provides permanent, affordable housing for 28 homeless adults living with psychiatric disabilities and is located next to the Shelter Cove program. The housing is provided in two- and four-bedroom units. Each resident has a private bedroom and shares a common living area.
Interim provides active case management, mental health counseling, placement services, help with daily living skills, transportation, and assistance connecting with other community resources. Sandy Shores also has a greenhouse, which provides recreational gardening opportunities for residents and a welcome supply of vegetables and herbs!
