The Supervised Apartment Program can be a transitional living step or permanent housing for graduates of the Residential Living Center. Residents of this program have increased knowledge in managing their illness and have improved psychiatric stability. This program offers residents more spacious accommodations and the opportunity and responsibility of greater independence.

Staff supports are more limited than in the Residential Living Center (group home) and are focused on residents practicing independent living skills including: self-care, cooking, cleaning, money management, leisure time planning, etc. Residents may also work on accepting greater responsibility for self­-medication.

Supervised Apartment residents generally have a commitment to work, school, or volunteerism outside of the program.
