Independent living can create a feeling of self-confidence and self-reliance.
Henderson offers an array of housing options designed to assist people in reaching their full potential. This includes community-based, licensed Residential Treatment Facilities which provide residential care in both group home and supervised apartment environments. Group homes have caring, family-like atmospheres where residents build skills, develop relationships and learn to manage symptoms. The supervised apartment program provides the opportunity to strengthen learned skills in a supportive environment before transitioning into permanent housing.
