Cota Health's Adams House supportive housing program provides rent subsidized accommodation and support for 20 men and 6 women living with mental health challenges. Each tenant has his/her own bedroom and shares a bathroom and kitchenette with two or three other tenants. Cota Health provides on-site support during the day, seven days per week. Overnight security is on-site seven nights per week. The staff work collaboratively with tenants, their families, the landlord and other clinicians, as appropriate, to assist tenants to: develop an individual safety and housing support plan; maintain their housing stability and a healthy housing environment; acquire and/or maintain the skills necessary for daily living; participate in health promotion and community development activities such as tenant meetings, structured educational events and social activities; resolve situational problems/disputes; link to other desired community services/supports, as needed; achieve/maintain optimum health and wellness; and pursue personal recovery.
