Our principal aim is to create and implement programs that provide vision and hope to help counter the social stigma so often associated with individuals living with mental health disorders. Overall, THWP programs serves and strengthens their residents by offering a sense of hope and belonging.
Ultimately, we promote the dignity and self-worth of all of our residents, and strive to give them an excellent quality of life, as defined by them, individually and as a group. We encourage resident decision-making through house meetings, access to all communal areas of the home and self-determination in activities, socialization, and meal preferences.
THWP is not just an affordable housing and care-giving facility, it is our clients’ home as well as their community.
A fresh start.
THWP serves approximately 40 clients annually. Duration of service averages 6 months to 1 year for our residents. Weekly activities and trainings are offered to develop resident skill sets and abilities. The intended impact is to strengthen the lives of our clients by offering three areas of service: housing, case management, and social networking.
We believe that clients who manage their medication, develop life skills, and maintain healthy relationships full of support, guidance, and encouragement develop into healthy and productive citizens.
