General Information
Description of ServiceA program that assists men suffering from varying degrees of mental illness and substance abuse. These men are referred to the "Y" by a community service agency (SPOA, Ellis Hospital, Conifer Park, etc...) and are receiving some form of income (SSI, SSD, Veterans Benefits, Pensions.)
Participants are attached to case management within the building and transportation is available to ensure appointments are kept. If an individual is in need of a representative payee, they can sign up for that at the "Y." There is a full time Payeeship Coordinator to assist residents with budgeting the money properly. The majority of the men in this program are currently on some type of medication and the "Y" manages their medication to ensure they stay med compliant. The med office is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 364 days a year. Residents are expected to come to the med office to take their daily medication. The Economic Development Program exposes all men living at the YMCA to various job opportunities in the community. This also allows men to obtain assistance in making themselves a more valuable commodity in the work force (GED, college, resume writing and interviewing skills.)
