Communal Housing Program
currently owns and operates three properties that provide supervised sheltered housing for twenty MWI clients. A fourth property was purchased in November 2021 and is currently being made ready to accommodate up to eight additional MWI clients.
In furtherance of its objects, the Foundation works very closely with the MWI and assists MWI in achieving its stated goal of resettling eligible clients out of institutional accommodation and back into the general community. MWI’s treatment approach is based upon a Recovery Model of Care, which includes a set of values about a person’s right to build a meaningful life for themselves with or without the continuing presence of mental health symptoms. Recovery is based on ideas of self-determination and self-management. It emphasizes the importance of “hope” in sustaining motivation and supporting expectations of an individually fulfilled life.
