Heartland Family Service Heartland Bridges offers two services, Transitional Living and Crisis Care. Staff are available 24 hours at Heartland Bridges for resident oversight and assistance.
Transitional Living provides short-term housing for people in transition to and from mental health or substance use treatment, support services, and/or permanent housing. The goal is to help clients secure permanent housing and connect them with community-based mental health or substance use services and avoid unnecessary incarcerations.
Transitional Living aims to provide a home-like, trauma-informed experience for clients. The 11 beds are arranged in double-occupancy bedrooms and bathrooms, and also offers a family-style kitchen, dining room, and living room. Laundry equipment is available.
Crisis Care is a 3–5-day Crisis Stabilization Residential Service for individuals experiencing a mental health crisis to receive therapeutic services for mental and emotional stabilization.
