In 2013, we launched our supportive employment program (before we even became Residency!). Being a tight-knit group has always allowed us to create a unique environment that's relaxed and lenient, while also challenging in a purposeful way for our staff.
June 2023 will not only mark 10 years of supportive employment, but will also mark 10k hours of employment that we've offered as an organization. This important conjunction inspired us to dream of more: 10 Residency Mindset Trauma Therapy Program participants.
All individuals, but especially women, who have experienced homelessness experience a much higher risk of mental health issues, chronic illnesses, and social isolation. Not only that, but therapy is difficult to start financially and logistically for anyone, but especially those struggling and alone. Our priority-access therapy network allows us to provide almost immediate access to long-term therapists for next to no charge ($5 per session).
Now that we've launched our RM Therapy Program with over 15 completed sessions, we're ready to expand our program and services to more people who need it most. Currently, our therapy network allows us to scale up based on our capabilities and we're dreaming of 10 participants.
Our therapists work with participants on an individual basis, offering personal counseling tailored to their needs and experiences. We act as the overseers and connectors for the various moving parts, while remaining in consultation with participants and staff.
Expanding this program is our dream and we're grateful for your support! There's only one way to make a dream a reality, and that's through consistent hard work and belief, and we'll be working!
