About Us

Welcome Home Housing was founded in 2004 by families from the National Alliance on Mental Illness who had a family member with a mental illness. Not content with the choices in housing for our family members, we decided to start the kind of housing we believed was needed. We knew that when persons with mental illness become stable, they recognize and understand the need for medication in their recovery. They want to accomplish something and move on with their lives and not live isolated in board and cares or in small apartments. There was little housing with the support necessary to assist them in their journey. We believed that when given an opportunity to move forward, they would. They have proven us right.

Welcome Home Housing supports the individual goals of our residents. We assist them in finding a direction or goal, whether it’s learning how to cook, clean, shop, use public transportation, use a computer, attend school, look for a volunteer job or a paying job. The goals are as individual as the people involved. We provide a lot of “atta boys" or "atta girls”. We refer them to agencies as needed. We listen and help them problem solve. We encourage them to move beyond their fear of trying something new and to grow into the person he or she wants to become.
